Chrissy Amphlett Lost Her Battle Against Breast Cancer — And Turned Her Hit Single “I Touch Myself” Into An Anthem For AwarenessThe Breast Cancer Site
In December 1990, an Australian group called the Divinyls released a song from their fifth album called “I Touch Myself” that celebrated female sexuality − and it quickly became a huge hit. By March 1991, the single reached number four on the U.S. Billboards Top 100, and in Australia, it reached number one. So when lead singer Chrissy Amphlett was diagnosed with breast cancer, she wanted to make this song the new anthem for breast cancer awareness.
It’s been a year since Chrissy lost her battle with breast cancer, and now ten of Australia’s best singers are helping send Chrissy’s message: Connie Mitchell, Deborah Conway, Kate Cerebrano, Katie Noonan, Little Pattie, Megan Washington, Olivia Newton-John, Sarah Blasko, Sarah McLeod, and Suze DeMarchi.
