10 Celebrities Who Battled Breast Cancer
Kylie Minogue (diagnosed 2005 at 36)
A misdiagnosis almost lost Australian pop star Kylie Minogue her chance to fightand defeatbreast cancer. It wasn’t until she decided to go in for a second round of tests that doctors found the lump in her left breast. A partial mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation followed.
The singer has emerged from her ordeal with a plea that women should trust their gut more when they go to the doctor. “Just because someone is in a white coat and using big medical instruments doesn’t necessarily mean they’re right,” she told Ellen DeGeneres in 2007.
