    Arrow Kylie Minogue given the all-clear from cancer

    KYLIE Minogue has been given the all-clear from cancer, The Sun can reveal.
    The pop princess received the good news from doctors in Paris and has now gone back to Australia to celebrate with her family.

    Kylie, 37, was last night said to be “utterly, unbelievably overjoyed” after docs revealed her six-month chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer had been successful.

    She received her crucial test results last Friday and spent the weekend with boyfriend Olivier Martinez, who was 40 yesterday. Then she flew to Melbourne — arriving on Wednesday to share her joy with dad Ron, mum Carol, brother Brendan and pop star sister Dannii.

    The family had dinner at the parents’ home and cracked open a bottle of champagne they had been saving for months in anticipation.

    A source close to the star said last night: “Kylie was desperate to see her family. She just wanted to hug them all and tell them it was going to be okay.

    “She is thrilled and relieved. It’s been a tough few months and there have been times when she felt very weak and very down. Chemotherapy is a gruelling, horrible treatment which puts the body under intense strain.

    “But this is the news she has been waiting to hear and she can hardly put her happiness into words — she just keeps beaming.

    “For the past couple of months she has been feeling very positive and healthy. She has put a bit of weight on and has been feeling confident about the future.

    “Her hair is even beginning to grow back, which she is tickled pink about. So this news really is the icing on the cake.”

    Kylie had a partial mastectomy in Oz in May after finding a lump in her left breast.

    She then underwent chemotherapy in Paris to kill off any remaining cancerous cells.

    Kylie had her final session on December 18 and had a tense Christmas waiting to hear whether the treatment had been successful.

    A scan showed there were no more cancer cells in her body.

    She also had tests on her heart because chemotherapy can put it under strain, and docs checked her hormone levels.

    All the tests came back normal and she has been given the “all-clear” — which means doctors are certain the cancerous tumour has gone, and that the chemotherapy has not damaged her bone marrow.

    Next week she will start daily radiation treatment as a precaution to guard against cancerous cells returning. She will be tested again after six weeks of radiation.

    If the results remain negative in six months’ time she will officially be in remission.

    Kylie will have the radiation therapy at a Melbourne hospital using a Vac-Lok bag — a cushion-like device.

    It will ease Kylie into the right shape so the radiation is delivered to the precise area of the breast — targeting only the cancer-struck spot and not healthy areas of tissue.

    Kylie has requested early morning appointments so she can go in and out of hospital with the minimum of fuss. The radiation takes just ten minutes per day.

    The source said: “It is important she has it because, even though her body is clear of cancer at the moment, she is very young and the cancer she had was very aggressive.

    “That means it could come back and radiation will hopefully prevent that.

    “Kylie is keen to get it over with, then she can start planning the rest of her life.

    “She aims to spend weekdays with her parents, and weekends at the family’s holiday home in French Island, which is a two-hour drive away from Melbourne.

    “Kylie wants to use that time to relax and get herself fit and strong.

    “She has already announced she wants to reschedule the Australian leg of the Showgirl Tour which she had to cancel, and she is thinking of doing some more recording and getting an album together.

    “It’s wonderful to see her back on form — everyone is thrilled.”

    Umm, The radio just announced that sources from Kylie deny it? Apparently they are saying the Sun got it wrong? *scratches head*

    Kylie Minogue Given The All Clear!
    Or has she?

    by Davina Earl

    It has today been reported that Kylie Minogue has finally won her battle with breast cancer.

    The Sun revealed that the pint-size popstrel received the long-awaited all clear last Friday, and then spent a celebratory weekend with boyfriend Olivier Martinez. She then reportedly flew back to Australia to share the good news with her family.

    Last night she was said to be “utterly, unbelievably overjoyed,” whilst a source close to the star affirmed:

    “She is thrilled and relieved. It’s been a tough few months and there have been times when she felt very weak and very down. Chemotherapy is a gruelling, horrible treatment which puts the body under intense strain.”

    “But this is the news she has been waiting to hear and she can hardly put her happiness into words — she just keeps beaming.”

    “Her hair is even beginning to grow back, which she is tickled pink about. So this news really is the icing on the cake.”

    However, the happy news has been undermined by Minogue’s Australian publicist who told theage.com: “there’s no validity to this. It’s not true.” And furthermore was unable to confirm whether or not Minogue was still receiving treatment.
    What a perverse rumor to start. I hope it was an accident
    and not some kind of prank.

    Of course, if she is better, we get to go back to mocking her
    without mercy, correct?
