Olivia Newton-John Battling Cancer For A Third Time

In a new interview with Australia’s Sunday Night, Olivia Newton-John has revealed that she’s battling cancer for the third time, opening up for the first time about a 2013 bout with the disease –her second– that she previously decided to keep to herself.

The Grease star, 69, first was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, and when a minor car accident in 2013 led to the discovery that the disease had returned, she said she decided to not speak publicly about it because, “I thought, ‘It’s my life,’ and I just decided to keep it to myself.'”

Now, the singer revealed, she is battling cancer for a third time after discovering a tumor at the base of her spine last year. She says she has undergone radiation therapy and is also pursuing natural remedies, including medical marijuana that her husband, John Easterling, grows on the couple’s ranch in Santa Barbara.

Newton-John says she remains optimistic and is determined to beat the disease again. “I believe I will win over it, and that’s my goal,” she said.
