The 45-year-old Anastacia -- who made a full recovery from her first bout with cancer in 2003 after being treated with surgery and radiotherapy -- was forced to cancel her European tour in February after her second diagnosis of breast cancer.

She also used her latest announcement to draw attention to helping prevent the disease. "Breast Cancer Awareness Month gives all who are facing this disease a chance to gain strength and support from each other. Early detection has saved my life twice.
