Anastacia Cancels Tour After Diagnosed With Breast Cancer for Second Time
Anastacia has just found out that the breast cancer which she was diagnosed with in 2003 comes back. The American singer, who makes it big outside the United States with her 2000 dance hit "I'm Outta Love", is forced to cancel all her scheduled gigs and appearances to focus her energy on battling the illness for the second time.
"Anastacia has sadly been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time after having successfully survived her 2003 battle with the disease. Consequently she has been forced to cancel all performances, tours and any travel from now until further notice," it's announced on her Facebook page.
"I feel so awful to be letting down all my amazing fans who were looking forward to 'It's A Man's World Tour'. It just breaks my heart to disappoint them," the 44-year-old singer regretfully says of the cancellation.
During the break, she "will continue the writing and recording of her new album despite her diagnosis and hopes to schedule a new tour as soon as possible." She "has one goal and that is to make a full recovery with the support of her family, friends and everyone around her," her rep says.
Fans are asked to "respect her need for privacy during such a trying time," the rep concludes. "All tickets for the tour can be refunded from the point of purchase."
After surviving the cancer in 2003, Anastacia created Anastacia Fund to promote the importance of mammograms to women 35 and under, and raises awareness of breast cancer among younger women. Every Friday for six months, she selected outfit from her stage wardrobe to sell on eBay with a portion of the proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
