News 22/08/2017

Three months ago Olivia Newton John announced that her breast cancer had returned.

Now she has given another update on her health.

"[It’s been] 25 years since my first [diagnosis] back in 1992. I’m feeling good [and] am totally confident that my new journey will have a positive success story to inspire others," she recently said.

"Being on this journey again has brought me closer to what every patient and their families are going through," Olivia continued. "I know we will find a cure for cancer in my lifetime!"

The actress and singer first battled breast cancer back in 1992 and underwent a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy, and breast reconstruction at the time. 

After her battle in 1992 she became an advocate for breast cancer research.

In May she announced on Facebook that she had been diagnosed again with breast cancer and this time it had metastasized to the sacrum, a lower back bone.

Olivia's long time friend, John Farnham has said that Olivia is staying positive during her second cancer battle. 

"I've spoken to Olivia in the last few days, and, as always she is very positive. She told me she is feeling good and confident of a total healing," he told News.com.au.
