With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, singer Anastacia has revealed that she had a double mastectomy. In a statement the singer says, "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." Music-news says that the star went on to praise Breast Cancer Awareness Month, explaining it gives hope to many women all over the world. "Early detection has saved my life twice. I will continue to battle and lend my voice in any way I can," she said. Anastacia was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 after it was found during a routine mammogram before her planned breast reduction surgery. She had a partial mastectomy and six weeks of radiotherapy. In February this year she was forced to cancel tour dates after finding her cancer had returned.
