Olivia Newton-John, the Grease legend, is seen in a rare video while battling stage 4 cancer.
In the midst of her breast cancer treatment, JOHN has been seen in a rare video to commemorate her 73rd birthday next month.
Olivia Newton-John is gearing up to celebrate her 73rd birthday on September 26th, and she’s sent an emotional message for the occasion. On August 20th, the Grease star sent out a rare video to her 1.2 million followers, informing them that she needed their support.
“I want to welcome you to Olivia’s Walk for Wellness, my virtual event on Sunday, September 26th, which also happens to be my birthday, to help raise cash for people with cancer to thrive,” she stated.
“I’m sure my birthday wish, like yours, is for a world free of disease. “Wonderful world.”
Fans reacted positively to the news, with one tweeting, “It’s so lovely seeing you, looking more gorgeous than ever.”
“That smile,” a second said. Seriously. It never fails to pique my interest. Olivia appears to be incredibly glowing and stunning!”
“Wishing you much-needed health repair,” wrote a third. Because you’re a national treasure, I’m dedicating my evening prayers to your health.”
Olivia has stage four breast cancer that has spread throughout her body, and this is the third time she’s been diagnosed with the disease in the last 28 years.
Last year, she told The Guardian about the cancer’s recurrence: “It’s been a part of my life for so long.” Something didn’t feel right.
“When it comes back, it’s concerning, but I tell myself, ‘I’ll get through it again.’ Isn’t it three times lucky?
“I’m going to think about it that way. Listen, I believe that every day is a gift. You never know when your time on this earth is up; we all have a limited amount of time here, and all we can do is be grateful for it.”
The Grease star was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, not long after her father, a veteran MI5 agent who worked on the Bletchley Park Enigma project, died.
When it returned in 2013, Olivia’s older sister, Rona, had recently died, and Olivia only learned of the cancer’s reappearance after being in a vehicle accident.
She was still shellshocked with sadness both times. She claims that the cancer’s recurrence four years ago was not unexpected.
However, she claims that one item, in addition to surgery, has been quite beneficial. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
