Her message to Alex was:

I know you can get through this. Don't listen to stage four and all of that. Don't read the statistics and stay focused and see how you can heal yourself.

Olivia knows what she’s talking about. The actress has been diagnosed with breast cancer three times. At the beginning of 2019, the Grease star revealed in an interview with Sunday Night that her cancer returned last year but she believes she can go through this one more time.
