Los Angeles: Singer Michelle Heaton who has been diagnosed with rare gene that causes cancer says her worst fear is not waking up after the operation is over.
"In my darkest moment, my biggest fear is leaving Faith," Closer magazine quoted her as saying.
"But I`m also terrified of going in for the operation and never waking up again. I have a phobia about being put to sleep," she added.
The 33-year-old has been diagnosed with BRCA2 and according to the National Health Service (NHS), women with this type have a 50 to 80 percent chance of getting breast cancer in their lifetime.
