Is Delta Goodrem a cancer patient?
On August 16, 2020, Delta Goodrem released a six-minute video detailing the origins of her song “Paralyzed.” She revealed in the video that she had serious problems after having her salivary gland removed, which resulted in a nerve in her tongue becoming paralyzed and requiring her to relearn how to speak.
She couldn’t control her tongue due to nerve damage caused by the removal of a salivary gland last year, which affected her ability to speak and make sounds.
The singer went to speech therapy every day as she needed to relearn how to speak. Luckily she can now sing and speak again. Goodrem made the decision to hide her diagnosis until she dealt with the aftermath and recovered.
One of the organizations Goodrem has long funded is the Kinghorn Cancer Center in Sydney, a partnership between St Vincent’s Hospital and the Garvan Institute of Medical Research.
She also represents the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Sony Foundation Australia and Starlight Children’s Foundation. In May 2005, with the help of Goodrem, a website called Teen Info on Cancer was launched to help teenage cancer patients.
In November 2005, the Thank You Day presented Goodrem with a Celebrity Advocacy Award “in honor of her efforts to raise awareness and money for Australian medical research and charities”.
She also represented Research Australia as an ambassador on ‘Thank You Day’, a celebration of the country’s health and medical researchers.
