Now Anastacia has bravely admitted she took the decision to have her breasts surgically removed to save her life and hopes her story will provide comfort and support to other women battling the illness.
In a statement, she said: "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.
The 'I'm Outta Love' singer also emphasized the importance of early detection when it comes to cancer and insists she will always campaign to raise awareness of the disease.
She added: "Early detection has saved my life twice. I will continue to battle and lend my voice in any way I can."
Anastacia's announcement follows the revelation made by Angelina Jolie earlier this year that she'd had a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with the BRCA1 mutated gene which gave her an 87 per cent chance of getting breast cancer.
