Dannii Minogue has spoken of her relief that big sister Kylie Minogue is clear from cancer and revealed to The Sun, “At last the nightmare is over.” The 34-year-old said, “But I’m just grateful that this is now a happy year for us. I get fed up talking about bad times. Now it’s a happy time, she is better and the nightmare is over. So let’s all accept that it’s over and let’s all rejoice that she is better. I think it’s made every woman more conscious about breast cancer but I really don’t want to become a spokesman for breast cancer awareness. I just wanted to be a good sister and I’m only just coming out of that mode of protecting, caring, supporting and being there. I had to get my head around it all too, but the most important thing is that everyone stops talking about it. I know other people who have had cancer in their families and after a while they just don’t want to talk about it. You don’t want to talk about it every second of every day. Once it’s over, let it go. I like to live in the moment. Now I want to move on.”
