London: Kylie Minogue has been honoured by the Entertainment Industry Foundation`s Women`s Cancer Research Fund for her battle with breast cancer, in America on Thursday.

The 44-year-old singer, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, was given the 2013 Courage Award, the Daily Express reported.

Minogue admitted on the red carpet at the Beverly-Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, that she has found it hard to feel positive while fighting with the disease.
