Dannii Minogue reflects on sister Kylies terrifying cancer battle


Dannii Minogue has spoken candidly about how the cancer diagnosis of her older sister Kylie Minogue in 2005 impacted her.

Appearing on a podcast episode of ‘The Jess Rowe Big Talk Show’, the Australian star mentioned how grateful she was to have her sister in her life today after what was such a traumatic time for her and her family.

“We didn't know if she would get through it,” she said on the show. “It was a terrifying time.

"My friend in London had cancer and then another best friend got cancer and she passed away from it. Very young.

“It was horrible and from that moment onwards it really did upset me when I would hear someone say something negative about getting older, like you have another day on this planet.

“Yes, you might have another wrinkle,” she added reflectively. “but whatever you've got to enjoy every second of this precious life that you've been given."

Kylie was diagnosed with breast cancer at 36-years-old, while in the middle of her Showgirl Greatest Hits World Tour. Forced to sit out her popstar duties, Kylie underwent a partial mastectomy and rounds of radiation and chemotherapy.

Confirmed with the all-clear from cancer in 2006, Kylie has since flourished in her professional and personal life in the years that have followed.

Currently, she is in a relationship with Paul Solomons and has revealed her major decision to move back to Australia after 30 years, which sister Dannii – who is based in Australia – must be thrilled with.

The younger sibling has been reflecting on life quite a lot lately as she led up to her big milestone birthday on 20 October. The singer and presenter has reached 50, to the disbelief of fans as she posted her birthday celebrations on Instagram while looking incredibly youthful.

“So much birthday love today, and I’m feeling every bit of it. Loving all your posts and messages and memories. Thank you for making my special day feel extra special, Dx” the 50-year-old captioned a boomerang of herself in a shiny metallic dress, balloons and a glass of bubbly.

“Happy 50th birthday to such a beautiful woman inside and out, wishing you the best of everything @danniiminogue,” responded one follower.

“Happy birthday you absolute beautiful woman! How how howwwww are you 50?! Hope you have a fabulous day celebrating xxx,” wrote another in shock, while a third fan added: “No way….you don't seem a day over 30 something…..happy birthday @danniiminogue.”
