Anastacia revealed Tuesday that she has breast cancer. The pop singer was diagnosed with the cancer last week during a routine checkup.
?I appreciate all who are concerned, but please don’t worry,? she said. ?Either way, I have no intention of letting this news get me down. I’m a fighter by nature and nothing will ever change that.”
According to the Associated Press, Anastacia is currently in dance rehearsals in New York, and will finish shooting the music video for ?Love Is a Crime,? which appears on the ?Chicago? soundtrack, on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old was born in Chicago and grew up in New York. She was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, a chronic intestinal illness, when she was 13.
She has released two hit albums, and performed alongside Cher and Celine Dion at last year?s ?Divas Live? showcase.
