Kylie Minogue has been awarded an honorary doctorate for her work in raising awareness of breast cancer.
Anglia Ruskin University in Essex, UK made Dr. Kylie Minogue official this week.
Dr. Kylie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. Now six-years later she is still cancer free.
After the event Kylie said, “It is a really gorgeous honour”.
Since Kylie was first diagnosed with breast cancer, doctors have seen a noted increase in women coming in for check-ups to the point where they have called it “the Kylie effect”.
Kylie recently wound up her ‘Aphrodite’ tour. The tour was spread across 5 continents and 27 countries in 55 cities. Kylie played 77 shows, spent 150 days on the road, travelled 85,000 kilometres and played to 575,000 fans.
