Elton May Help Kylie Do An Aussie Charity Concert
Kylie Minogue is planning a star-studded charity fundraiser concert to mark the fifth anniversary of beating breast cancer.
The Aussie pop princess is making plans for a concert featuring showbiz friends like Elton John, Robbie Williams and The Scissor Sisters for February to raise money for cancer charities, The Sunday Mirror reports.
Minogue, 42, wants to involve the Paris-based doctor who oversaw her treatment as a way of saying thank you for her return to health.
"Early next year it will be my five years all clear and I would like to do something to mark that - something like a benefit concert," Minogue told the newspaper.
"We are going to try and arrange something with my professor in Paris."
Minogue, who is jetting back to Australia to be with sister Dannii and her new son Ethan Edward, said she hoped to continue raising awareness of the disease and the importance of early detection.
"I know a lot of women went for screenings after my announcement. And a lot of people came up to me and said I saved them," she said.
"Of course I didn't - but it made them go and get checked."
