Anastacia

After surviving breast cancer at age 39, singer-songwriter Anastacia tucked away the thought that is the cancer ever came back she'd choose a double mastectomy. In February of 2013 when she was diagnosed for a second time at age 45, she did just that. “Any journey down that road is not easy for a female, period," Anastacia said on British talk show Lorraine. "But you just gotta do what you gotta do, and I'm cancer free forever -- breast cancer free, at least, and that has been all worth the struggle.” Working on sixth album is where she's found healing.
