A statement Thursday says the 44-year-old performer will cancel all appearances and travel until further notice.

Anastacia, who has had multiplatinum album sales in Europe, Australia and elsewhere, was scheduled to perform March 30 at the Dubai World Cup, the world's richest horse race. Her European tour was set to begin in London on April 6.

She successfully battled breast cancer in 2003.

My prayers goes out to Ms. Anastacia. Indeed when talking about your health one of the most dreaded word is the one which starts with the letter (C) It took my sister's live however Ms. Anastscia is young and with good treatment; she will be able to live many more years-by God's grace.
