This is heartbreaking: In a surprising revelation, Olivia Newton-John has revealed that she has breast cancer again.
After suffering from severe back pain, the 68-year-old star discovered that the disease has spread to her spine. As a result, Newton-John had no choice but to postponed her remaining tour dates in Canada and the United States.
In a statement posted on her Facebook page, the Australian-born entertainer announced that she will be undergoing a mix of photon radiation therapy and natural wellness therapies.
“I decided on my direction of therapies after consultation with my doctors and natural therapists and the medical team at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia,” said Newton-John. Having said that, the actress remains optimistic that about her future, adding that she’ll resume her rescheduled concert dates later this year.
Newton-John was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, shortly after her father passed away due to cancer. At the time, she had chemotherapy and underwent a partial mastectomy followed by reconstruction.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Newton-John.
