Anastacia - Anastacia Undergoes Double Mastectomy

Pop star Anastacia has undergone a double mastectomy after she was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time earlier this year (13).

The singer, who was forced to axe her European tour after doctors told her in January (13) that the disease had returned, announced on her Twitter.com page in July (13) that she had beaten the illness.

She has now revealed she is "in the final stages of recovery" following the the radical surgery and hopes to support fellow cancer patients as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The I'm Outta Love hitmaker 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.

"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 any way I can."

The singer previously won a battle against breast cancer in 2003.
