Kylie Minogue cancer history and survivor story

Video Transcript:

Kylie Ann Minogue, born on 28th May 1968, is an Australian-British singer and actress.

She achieved recognition by starring in the Australian soap opera Neighbours, it was one of the most watched Australian TV series ever.

Then she decided to start her journey as a recording artist.

The lead single “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” became one of the most successful singles of the 2000s. It is recognized as her “signature song” and was named “the catchiest song ever” by Yahoo! Music.

She is recognized as the highest-selling Australian artist of all time by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA).

She was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 36 on 17 May 2005.

This was just months after being initially cleared — or misdiagnosed, she claims — by her doctor.

Four days after her diagnosis, Minogue had surgery and commenced chemotherapy treatment soon after.

She discussed her illness and said that her chemotherapy treatment had been like “experiencing a nuclear bomb”.

She defeated cancer and is cancer free ever since.

Minogue was acknowledged for the impact she made by publicly discussing her cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Minogue was awarded an honorary Doctor of Health Science (D.H.Sc.) degree by Anglia Ruskin University for her work in raising awareness for breast cancer.

In February 2012, VH1 ranked Minogue at number 47 on their VH1 Greatest Women in Music.

If she can do it, you can too.
