Pop artist Anastacia has been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time, announcing that she will be cancelling her European tour, due to kick off on April 4.

"News about cancer — Yes it has come back, yes I'm fighting it, but this time the battle is pretty intense," the American singer/songwriter posted on Twitter today.

"Thank you for your love and prayers."

"Anastacia has sadly been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time after having successfully survived her 2003 battle with the disease," a statement on her website reads.

"Consequently she has been forced to cancel all performances, tours and any travel from now until further notice."

"I feel so awful to be letting down all my amazing fans who were looking forward to It's A Man's World Tour," Anastacia commented in the statement.

"It just breaks my heart to disappoint them."

The singer plans to continue writing and recording her new album and the tour will be rescheduled as soon as possible.

In the meantime she is determined to live by her motto — "Don't ever let cancer get the best of you!'"
