  Anastacia fights on after cancer operation
Updated 04 March 2003, 13.37
Anastacia has asked other women to learn from her experience
Anastacia has pledged to fight her breast cancer, no matter what.

The singer had a seven-hour long operation in February to remove a lump.

She now faces six weeks of intensive radiation therapy.

'My heart is strong'

Anastacia, who's had huge hits with songs like I'm Outta Love and Paid My Dues, is only 29, which is very young to get breast cancer.

Anastacia's sold more than five million albums worldwide
But the strong star said she wouldn't let it beat her.

"My will, my faith and my body have been challenged," she said.

"But make no mistake, my heart is strong and my resolve to fight will never be broken.

"To all the people that have reached out to wish me well, I thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Operation

Anastacia also begged other women to have regular tests for breast cancer, and asked them to learn from her experience.

The star, who's sold more than five million albums, also had an operation to treat a bad bowel problem, called Crohn's Disease, when she was just 13 years old.
