Olivia Newton-John says she has been diagnosed with cancer for the third time in three decades. She told Australian news program “Sunday Night” doctors found a tumour in her lower back in 2017.
Olivia says she’s “treating it naturally and doing really well.” For pain, she is taking cannabis oil, made from marijuana her husband grows in California. She has undergone radiation treatments and has cut sugar out of her diet. Olivia says, “I believe I will win over it.” She also said she hopes her native Australia will legalize medical marijuana.
Olivia Newton-John was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, undergoing a partial mastectomy and reconstruction. She was diagnosed with breast cancer again in 2013. The singer has a cancer center named after her in Melbourne, Australia, the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness Research Center. She’ll turn 70 on September 26th.
