For Minogue, it was those around her – both family and strangers – that gave her the strength to come out the other end of her diagnosis.
"People shone so bright for me in those dark days. The strength my family showed was extraordinary. The love, support and the kindness of strangers! I was so very aware of, and grateful for, all that had gone before me."
