Recording artist, DJ and now breast cancer survivor Sonique
has endured two surgeries for breast cancer, and opted to take 5 months of chemotherapy
to prevent a recurrence. Although she had planned to release her new single ‘World Of Change’ in July, she will instead recover from surgery and then begin chemo. The energetic and very fit star of the Brit Pop scene said, "I’m basically getting used to the fact that I have to take it easy. It’s a big deal, so it’s going to be quite quiet for a while." Sonique is not looking forward to chemo, but since her cancer had spread beyond her breast to her lymph nodes
, it's important that she do the right thing, to free herself of cancer. “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do in my life,” she added, “but I’m sure people have had harder things to deal with as well.” Already having overcome homelessness and becoming a self-made star, Sonique has a lot of fight in her. I hope that grit and determination will carry her through the months ahead.
