“It’s always such a difficult question to answer with a neat sentence, but cancer changed many things forever, and some things didn’t change at all," Minogue, now 51, tells WHO.
"My view of the world was different, my destination, for the most part, was the same. Broader, for sure. I was even more passionate about the people and things that I loved, but life as I had known it was on hold."
The star admits that at the time, "I tried to be positive, but I was also realistic with the need to allow some space for all of the other difficult feelings and emotions."
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."
But, if Minogue were to sum up her experience in one neat sentence, it would be: "The research, the trials, the heartbreak, the loss, the progress, the love and the hope.”
