Strictly star Anastacia's fight against breast cancer
After beating breast cancer twice, I’m really passionate about trying to do something to help change the odds for others who are affected by this terrible disease.
"Breast cancer has been a part of my life twice over the last decade. So I’m passionate about changing the odds for people affected by this terrible disease. As well as making a donation of my own, I’ll be using my upcoming appearance on Strictly Come Dancing to raise money for Cancer Research UK's ground-breaking research.
Appearing on Strictly has given me the chance to do something positive by raising money to fund the charity’s world-leading scientists and improve the outlook for women with breast cancer.
My experience with cancer taught me the importance of knowing your body and being able to quickly spot any abnormalities. Spotting cancer at an early stage can make a huge difference. To be able to raise awareness and people’s spirits is all I want to do. I’m going to hit that dance floor every weekend, to not only try my best to win the competition, but with an extra incentive knowing that every penny I receive will help beat cancer sooner.
All the money donated will be for breast cancer research. If we all dig deep and donate we can raise vital funds to help improve survival rates."
