1. Kylie Minogue
Kylie Minogue, a multi-talented Australian celebrity, was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 36 in May 2005. After her announcement, many people expressed their support to the singer, actress, and songwriter, and even Australia’s Prime Minister John Howard issued a statement of support for her.
She underwent surgery and chemotherapy for a duration of eight months, but afterwards expressed her revulsion on her medical choice, commenting, “Because someone is in a white coat and using big medical instruments doesn’t necessarily mean they’re right,” in an interview in The Ellen DeGeneres show.
Kylie also used alternative methods like visualization pattern, Reiki, and nutrition to beat cancer. Now, she is cancer-free and continues to inspire women and the awareness against breast cancer.
