Olivia Newton-John diagnosed with cancer for third time

Olivia Newton-John has revealed that she is sadly battling with cancer for a third time.

The Grease icon beat breast cancer over two decades ago, but past year, she revealed the disease had returned, forcing her to postpone her An Evening With Olivia Newton-John tour.

She told Sunday Night she initially believed it was a due to the strain of her seat belt, before scans revealed it was the return of the breast cancer she had beaten two decades earlier.

The Grease star, who turns 70 this month, appeared on Australian TV and said that doctors found a tumor at the base of her spine in 2017. The "Grease" star says for pain, she is taking cannabis oil, made from marijuana her husband grows in California. She was diagnosed with breast cancer again in 2013.

In 2013, Newton-John was diagnosed with cancer in her shoulder after a vehicle accident, which she kept a secret.

Olivia sits down with Sunday Night's Alex Cullen for this very candid interview to reveal the secret she's refused to tell until now.

"I thought, 'It's my life, ' and I just chose to keep it to myself", she told the Sunday Night show.

When asked how she stops herself from feeling scared, Newton-John said: "By having a focus on other things and not thinking about yourself all the time. I am still treating it naturally and doing really well", she said.

"In California, it's legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes", she said. So [my husband] makes me tinctures. But in recent years, it's her fight against cancer that's been in the headlines. She also has a cancer centre named after her in Melbourne. In a Facebook post, her team said she was undergoing "natural wellness therapies" and "a short course" of radiation.

"I'm very lucky that I live in a state where it's legal and that I have a husband that is a plant-medicine man".

"My dream is that it won't be long before everyone has access to this healing medicine", she added.

'I live in this handsome place. "I have a wonderful husband, I have all the animals I adore, I have an incredible career".
