Sick Goodrem Told To Use Cancer To Sell Records

Australian singer DELTA GOODREM was shocked when her advisors suggested using her fight against cancer to boost her career.

The 19-year-old, who is currently in remission from Hodgkin's Disease, was far more concerned with her immediate crisis than her future career.

The former NEIGHBOURS star says, "I had some people who were working with me who talked to me about turning my health issue into a positive thing for my career.

"I was sitting there trying to get my head around the fact that I could die and I was being told that I could somehow use this to my advantage."

Goodrem also found it difficult to come to terms with losing her hair, adding, "I never managed to get used to my hair falling out. I always really liked my hair. I could never get over seeing it in the plug hole."
