Olivia Newton-John of 'Grease' Fame Gives Positive Update on Her Battle with Breast Cancer
Olivia Newton-John has shared new updates about her health status since she last revealed that she was battling cancer for the third time since 1992.
The English-born Australian singer, who recently revealed that she is battling cancer for the third time, has given some updates on her health status.
"...when the "Two of a Kind" star appeared on "60 Minutes Australia," she revealed that she has chosen not to focus on how much time doctors say she had left."
The emotional actress had added that she was grateful for the support and love she got from her followers. Olivia further shared that she believed that a person's belief system had a lot to do with their healing process.
The singer revealed that although she had seen how things inside her were "going away, staying the same" during her last MRI, she wasn’t bothered about any of it.
It will be recalled that the "Physical" crooner was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 before doctors later found cancer in her shoulder following a 2013 car accident. In 2017, she was informed that the disease had spread to her back with a tumor at her spine's base.
As at that time, Olivia pointed out that her cancer was stage 4 even though she no longer believed it was at that level as she chose not to focus on "the numbers." During a September 2019 with Gayle King on "CBS This Morning," she had joked that:
"Denial is really healthy. It was consuming by day, and after some time I went, 'You know what? I don't know what my time is, but I need to enjoy my life."
USA Today also reported that when the "Two of a Kind" star appeared on "60 Minutes Australia," she revealed that she has chosen not to focus on how much time doctors say she had left.
Olivia stated that when a cancer diagnosis was given to a patient; it usually came with the possibility of a time limit. So, if a person was given six months to live, the person would start living with that mindset.
However, for her, it was better not to have any idea of what a patient was to expect; thus she usually tunes out during such conversations.
