Anastacia has been struck down with breast cancer again, ten years after recovering from her first bout of the illness.

The 'Left Outside Alone' singer has been forced to cancel her upcoming European Spring tour and refund all tickets following the devastating news and has issued an apology on her official Facebook page. Amazingly, she seems more concerned with her fans' enjoyment than her own poor health and mentioned in the statement, '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.' While it's difficult to imagine any of her fans getting upset about the tour over her latest health scare, she insists that rather than taking time out, she will continue to work on her new album and will arrange some new dates as soon as possible.

The star first discovered she had cancer when she went for a mammogram following a decision to get a breast reduction. After completing radiotherapy and making a full recovery, she set up her own cancer charity, The Anastacia Fund. But this brave star has had other health complications in her life including Crohn's Disease and a heart condition called supraventricular tachycardia. In spite of all this though, she remains an inspiration to people young and old with her undefeatable attitude to life.
