Date October 31, 2019

Is the Grease star Olivia Newton-John dead? She recently confessed in an interview with Lorraine, that she is “feeling great” despite her ongoing battle with breast cancer.

Last year, the actress revealed she's battling cancer for the third time, and since then there were a lot of rumors about her death. The music icon denied the media rumors noting that the reports greatly exaggerated.

Olivia was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 and went through months of chemotherapy and breast removal surgery. She was in remission until 2013 when the star's doctors found out cancer had spread. The actress began treatments once again to deal with her condition. However, in 2017, the doctors found a tumor in her sacrum.

The Grease star in a recent interview revealed she's 'feeling great' amid her battle with stage 4 breast cancer. Olivia opened up to Ross King of Lorraine about her fight with the disease for the third time.

Talking about her ongoing fight and health, Olivia said:

I'm feeling great thank you, I was sick earlier in the year but I am doing better now. 'I feel a lot of love from people and a lot of prayers and they really help.

Since her third diagnosis, Olivia has battled breast cancer with a combination of chemotherapeutic and herbal treatments.

How much time does she have?

The award-winning star has earlier said she doesn't want to know how long she'll live. Speaking with "60 Minutes Australia," Olivia revealed that she chooses not to focus on how much time she has left.

When you're given a cancer diagnosis or a scary honest diagnosis, you're suddenly given a possibility of a time limit. So, for me, psychologically, it's better not to have any idea of what they expect, or what the last person that has what you have lived, so I don't tune in.

Olivia has been brave in the face of cancer, and we hope she triumphs over it finally!
