Anastacia: Cancer Is Back, Cancel European Tour
By Staff Writer | February 28, 2013 03:55 PM EST
US singer Anastacia announced on her website Wednesday that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time.
She previously battled the disease back in 2003 and has been in good health for many years, continuing to write and perform music around the world. Wednesday's announcement was a tragic shock for many fans.
Sadly, Anastacia's cancer news has forced her to cancel all her upcoming performances and travel plans until further notice including her scheduled appearance at the Dubai World Cup, the world's richest horse race, on March 30.
The multi-platinum artist also had to cancel her highly anticipated European tour that was planned to start in London on April 6.
"I feel so awful to be letting down all my amazing fans who were looking forward to 'It's a Man's World Tour,'" the 44-year-old singer-songwriter said in her statement. "It just breaks my heart to disappoint them."
According to her site, Anastacia still plans to continue with writing songs and recording a new album despite the unfortunate cancer diagnosis. She hopes to return to the road as soon as possible.
The statement on the website went on to say, "Now more than ever, she is determined to live by her motto, 'Don't ever let cancer get the Best of You!' A born survivor, Anastacia has one goal and that is to make a full recovery with the support of her family, friends and everyone around her."
