In 2003, pop singer Anastacia successfully overcame breast cancer – but it came back. The 44-year-old star confirmed that she has once again been diagnosed with the disease, forcing her to cancel her upcoming world tour, “It’s A Man’s World Tour”. It was supposed to include stops in Europe after kicking off in London on 6th April 2013.

She posted a statement on her Facebook page:

Anastacia Cancer


Previously, she also endured a number of health woes including suffering from Crohn’s disease since her teenage years (a type of inflammatory bowel disease that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract, causing a wide variety of symptoms) and also supraventricular tachycardia (episodes of rapid heart rate). Oh dear.

But we know you’re a fighter and a survivor, Anastacia. Get well soon!
