Olivia Newton-John reveals she has cancer for third time

Australian superstar Olivia Newton-John has revealed she is again battling cancer, her third diagnosis in three decades, during an interview broadcast on Sunday night.

While Olivia beat her second bout of cancer, she is now battling the disease again, with a tumour past year found at the base of her spine.

The "Grease" actress is now fighting cancer in her back, stemming from a tumor at the base of her spine, she confirmed on Australia's "Sunday Night".

She also confessed she had secretly battled another round of the disease in 2013, when medics found a tumour in her shoulder, but chose not to go public with the news, until now.

On a drive to visit her sister Rona just before she died of brain cancer, Olivia was in a vehicle accident.

"I love to sing, it's all I know how to do", she said. "But my husband's always there - he's always there to support me, and I believe I will win over it, and that's my goal".

The struggles and lack of cohesion shared by the starting group was obvious through the first half prior to Rodgers' injury. He moved in and out of the pocket and escaped the wrath of the Packers' defense to extend drives in the first half.


"Cancer is something I will need to stay on top of for the rest of my long life", she writes in the book, according to the Herald Sun.

She underwent a partial mastectomy and six months of treatment, including herbal formulas, meditation and focus on her diet and fitness, before getting the all clear.

Last year, the singer canceled her tour after she learned that she had "breast cancer that [had] metastasized to the sacrum". I see it as part of my mission.

Olivia said: "In California, it's legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes".

Despite all the hardship, Newton-John is keeping a positive mind and believes there are people out there who are far worse off than her. "They help with pain, they help with sleep". She's using cannabis oil, grown by her husband, John Easterling. Yeah. My dream is that, in Australia soon, it will be available to all the cancer patients and people going through cancer that causes pain. "I have nothing, really, to complain about", she said. And, um, I'm a very privileged person, and I'm very aware of that. "And I'm doing really well". "I have a wonderful husband, I have all the animals I adore, I have an incredible career".
