‘I have to keep myself sober the rest of my life and that’s a fight and it takes work. And we all have our cancers.’ 

She went on: ‘I’m not trying to make her struggle sound small, I’m trying to say, I think it makes it easier to deal with when you go, ‘Oh yeah, everyone has a cancer’.’

The veteran singer  spent her 70th birthday last September undergoing radiation treatment at the centre after her breast cancer returned and metastasised to her lower back in 2017.

The four-time Grammy winner was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, undergoing a partial mastectomy and reconstruction.

She battled cancer for a second time in 2013, but kept the illness private.
