Am I the only one who is sick of the papers all fawning over Kylie Minogue. I am truly sorry that she has breast cancer but I am sick of the press telling us how strong she is with brave Kylie this and poor Kylie that. She is not the first young person to suffer from breast cancer; there are thousands of people suffering round the world, who are just as brave as she is. In fact most of them will be a lot braver as they don’t lead such a privileged life style or have access to the best doctors, no they suffer in silence with only there close family to support them. My heart lies with all those that can’t afford the care Kylie is receiving and those who live much more humble lives.

I do hope she makes a full recovery; I am just sickened by the way the press keep going on about her, give her the peace to recover with dignity.

I haven't heard about this at all. Any person with cancer is horrible. Kylie is 37, by the way. There are many women younger than that with breast cancer. Celebrities in the news with any ailment bring this to the publics attention and perhaps people will be more diligent with their well care check ups.

Don’t get me wrong I am not having a go at Kylie; it’s just the way the press are continuing to fawn over her like she is the only one who has ever had this horrendous disease. There is one thing to report that she has cancer but to report if she goes for coffee, walks with her boyfriend in the park, is seen with her mother or sister, its not news, its intrusive. The print space could be given over to educating people about all forms of cancer as early detection is the key, but I suppose that won’t sell papers.
