Olivia Newton-John Says She’s “Winning Over It Well” Amid 3rd Cancer Battle
G'DAY USA / Twitter
On Saturday, January 25, 2020, an event called G’Day USA was held in Beverly Hills, California to raise funds for wildfire relief in Australia.
The night was filled with unity between America and Australia, with many famous Aussies in attendance including boy band 5 Seconds of Summer, actor Dacre Montgomery, actress Danielle MacDonald, and performances by Delta Goodrem and more.
Of course, it wouldn’t be an Aussie event in the states without Olivia Newton-John!
While speaking about money being raised for the wildfires in her native Australia, Newton-John also wanted to raise some awareness about the other cause that is so close to her heart – cancer.
“Life is a gift and I’ve had an amazing life and I intend to keep going with it and I want to help other people with cancer of course,” she said. “I have my wellness center in Melbourne and I want to see it in my lifetime so other people don’t have to suffer.”
Newton-John previously battled cancer twice in 1992 and 2013, but in 2017, she found out it was back and had spread to her bones.
Giving fans a long-awaited update, she said “I’m winning over it well and that’s how I see it. I don’t think about it a lot, to be honest. Denial is a really good thing and I’m getting stronger and better all the time! I’m doing well!”
