Sisters will always share a close bond, and that’s especially the case for the Aussie sisters Kylie and Dannii Minogue.

With Kylie celebrating her milestone 50th birthday earlier this year, younger sister Dannii reflected on the singer’s difficult battle with breast cancer 13 years ago.

“It was incredibly emotional, because not only was it a big birthday, but to have a family member that, you know, you hate to mention the cancer word… has gone through that,” she admitted on Who magazine’s Binge List podcast.

There was even a point during Kylie’s cancer battle in 2005 where her family “didn’t know” if she would make it.

“There were moments where we thought, ‘Will she live?'” Dannii said.

Kylie was just 36-years-old when she was diagnosed with the disease, but luckily was later given the all clear.


Despite not making it to her sister’s big birthday bash earlier this year, Dannii insisted there was still “so much to celebrate”.

“She’s still here, still strong and my god, having such an incredible year,” the 46-year-old said. “There’s so much to celebrate!”
