anastacia double mastectomy breast cancer second diagnosis

First, Angelina, and now Anastacia.

Let's hope this is the last time she'll ever has to deal with cancer!!

The pop singer's response to being diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time was swift and decided — she got a double mastectomy to try and stop it from ever returning.

At 45, she's strong and young enough keep this thing beaten! Here's what she said in a statement:

'In light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month l wanted to take the opportunity to support a cause particularly close to my heart. l was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time earlier this year and am currently in the final stages of recovery after undergoing a double mastectomy.

'It has been an intense journey but l am feeling great and ready to start the next chapter. Breast Cancer Awareness Month gives all who are facing this disease a chance to gain strength and support from each other. Early detection has saved my life twice. I will continue to battle and lend my voice in anyway I can.'

Hell yeah!!

We are SO happy that not only is she in the final stages of recovery, but also speaking up! Talking about things like this is the only way to help and reach those that need the support and inspiration!

She was first diagnosed in 2003 — and hopefully this year's diagnosis will be the last!

    Um, no. Not "first Angelina". Angelina NEVER had cancer. Stop acting like she was a cancer survivor. She was a healthy woman who lopped off her boobs for bigger ones. She doesn't have cancer and never did. Quit acting like she's some kind of survivor hero.

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – Not a fan of Angelina at all, but in her defence, she has a mutation of the BRCA1 cancer gene. Many women with this (or a similar) mutation make the same decision she did. You probably have no idea what it feels like to know that you have an 80% chance of developing breast cancer. Before you can even get tested for the mutation of the gene (which only tends to happen if there's a history of it in your family), you have to go through a pretty intense psychological assessment to determine whether or not you can handle the results.
    No, Angelina isn't some kind of survivor hero. She did, however, make a well informed decision . A decision that a small portion of (young) women have to deal with. A lot of people have little to no understanding of what these women go through and the decisions they all face. My guess is, it's nice for them to be able to relate to someone else. In this case, a celebrity.
