Olivia Newton-John was diagnosed with cancer for the third time in her life back in 2017. The actress has remained strong and positive despite her prognosis. Now she has a message for other women living with the disease.

Fighting breast cancer

The Australian beauty is an incredibly strong woman. Many don’t know she has been struggling with serious health issues for a long time. Back in 2018, Olivia revealed she's battling cancer for the third time.

She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. After treatments, the disease sadly returned again in 2013 which she kept private. But she was forced to confront it after postponing shows due to its return in 2017.

Advise to other women

The Grease star has a message for other women living with breast cancer. In an interview with Survivor.Net, Newton spoke about her battle with cancer and shared some words of wisdom. She said:

And then one other thing I would say is to find someone you’re close to—whether it’s your family, your husband, your best friend—find someone to field all the calls you’re going to get. Because people are going to be calling you to see how you’re doing and how you’re feeling, and it’s exhausting.

Olive continued:

It’s not healthy to be talking about sickness all the time. So get somebody else to do that for you so that you can take time to do something you enjoy for yourself.

The award-winning singer has the support of her husband, John Easterling, and daughter, Chloe Lattanzi to help her through her ordeal.

Best support system

The award-winning singer has a very strong support system. She has relied on the love and support of her daughter, Chloe Lattanzi who lives with her in South California.

Then her husband, John Easterling. Olivia’s better half is a natural health entrepreneur, who grows cannabis to help treat her pain.

We admire her bravery and hope that cancer will never pose a threat to her life anymore.
