The multi-talented entertainer who rose to prominence following the musical "Grease", featuring John Travolta, was diagnosed with cancer in 1992.

In 2020, the positive thinking actress confessed that cancer could have a negative influence, but she chose an alternative. In her words:

"Cancer can engulf your mind and engulf your being. And I try not to always live with that in my mind."

Such a mindset was instrumental in getting her through the medications and other procedures. Her health struggles included getting a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy, and breast reconstruction.

However, the singer refused to reveal the content of the song. Instead, she muted the audio, possibly, to keep the suspense until the song was released. Lattanzi continues to share pleasant memories of her mother in more than one way.

On Sunday, the dancer stormed the internet with several never-before-seen pictures featuring mother and daughter spending time in the kitchen and by a poolside.

Fans were stunned and gushed about the duo's bond while complimenting the adorable photos. Consequently, Newton-John's death is not the end of her story.
