Olivia Newton-John reveals she's fighting cancer for a third time

Sheri SchwartzSep 11, 2018

Olivia Newton-John has revealed she has cancer for a third time - on this occasion at the base of her spine.

The four-time Grammy victor, who will turn 70 on September 26, told Australian news programme Sunday Night that doctors found a tumour in her lower back in 2017.

"I'm one of millions in this fight.in this journey", she added.

The celeb was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time back in 1992 when she won the fight after a few months of chemotherapy and undergoing a partial mastectomy.

"I thought, "it's my life", and I just made a decision to keep it to myself", she explained in the interview. And she's hoping her native home will soon be able to take advantage of marijuana's benefits as well.

In early 2013, Olivia was involved in a minor vehicle accident, and a lump appeared in her right shoulder.

'I'd be lying if it said I never go there, there are some moments, I'm only human.

She told Sunday Night: "In California, it's legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes". "A lot of people see it as a fight". "I'm treating [the cancer] naturally and doing really well".

In May 2017, Newton-John cancelled tour dates after her breast cancer returned and spread to her sacrum.

Despite her multiple bouts with cancer, Newton-John says she focuses on other things as a means of staying strong.

"And we thought it was something to do with the accident, so, anyway, time went on more than that", Olivia reveals. "I see it as part of my mission maybe".

She told Sunday Night she initially believed it was a due to the strain of her seat belt, before scans revealed it was the return of the breast cancer she had beaten two decades earlier.

The interview unveiled that Newton-John is eating healthily and undergoing radiation treatment to treat her cancer and taking cannabis oil for pain relief. I have a wonderful husband.
