Anastacia - breast cancer survivor
Anastacia discovered she had breast cancer when she underwent a routine mammogram before having breast reduction surgery in 2003.
The singer had surgery and radiotherapy and went into remission. In 2005 Anastacia told The Box that her voice had lost some of its power due to the illness.
Anastacia set up the Anastacia Fund to promote awareness of breast cancer among women under the age of 40 who are not usually targeted for breast cancer screening, and to raise funding for breast cancer research. All proceeds of her 2005, "Heavy on My Heart," single went to the fund.
