Iconic Grease star Olivia Newton-John is not backing down from battling cancer once again.
The English-Australian singer revealed that her cancer had come back despite previously beating it twice. But Newton-John isn’t letting the aggressive illness break her spirit. Speaking to 60 Minutes Australia she says, “I’m so lucky that I’ve been through this three times and I’m still here.”
The actress also shared her outlook on life as he fights cancer.
“We know we’re gonna die at some point, and we don’t know when it is, when you’re given a cancer diagnosis or a scary honest diagnosis, you’re suddenly given a possibility of a time limit,” Newton-John said. “So every day is a gift.”
“If somebody tells you, you have six months to live, very possibly you will because you believe that,” Newton-John shared. “So for me, psychologically, it’s better not to have any idea of what they expect or what the last person that has what you have lived, so I don’t, I don’t tune in.”
“Every day is a gift, we don’t really know how long our life is,” she shared. “I’m very grateful, and I intend to be here for a long time. I have much to do still.”
Fellow Aussie performer Hugh Jackman has expressed his support for Newton-John during his show in Sydney, Australia on Monday. In Jackman’s The Man. The Music. The Show World Tour, he recorded and endearing message for Newton-John.
“High Olivia, it’s Hugh, and 15,000 of your friends and fans,” Jackman tells the actress while he shows the audience in Qudos Bank Arena cheering around him. You are the most amazing person, the most amazing mom, the most amazing ambassador. And we love you.”
