Kylie Minogue had been fighting breast cancer for years as a celebrity activist — she once auctioned off one of her bras for $7,000 at a breast cancer fundraiser in London — before learning this week that she had the disease herself. The Australian dance-pop diva, 36, was diagnosed with the disease during a visit to her hometown of Melbourne on the eve of her Showgirl Tour of the country, according to a statement issued by her management. As a result, her tour was postponed indefinitely. ”She is a pretty fit, strong girl. I’m hoping and praying because the doctor found it so early that everything will be OK,” concert promoter Michael Gudinski told Reuters on Tuesday. In her statement, the ”Can’t Get You Out of My Head” singer said she was ”sorry to have to disappoint my fans. Nevertheless, hopefully all will work out fine and I’ll be back with you all again soon.”
