The 72-year-old reportedly said she does not like to be told the life expectancy for people with her diagnosis. She believes that such predictions in themselves can affect people's minds.
Newton-John is grateful to be surrounded by people who love her and show support and strength to her. From her fans to her colleagues and, most importantly, family, the 72-year-old is happy to be full of love.
The singer revealed that she looks forward to attending her daughter's wedding to her longtime, James Driskill, later this year. The wedding is said to be planned in line with health regulations.
