Olivia Newton-John, the world-famous singer and actress known for her role as Sandy in the 1978 hit film Grease and her 1983 hit song "Physical," revealed that she is suffering from a form of spinal cancer.

Newton-John, 69, is no stranger to cancer, as she's had breast cancer in the 1990s and shoulder cancer in 2013. In both cases, she managed to beat them, and she hopes to do the same with this latest diagnosis, which she revealed in an interview with Sunday Night.


The superstar had discovered a tumor at the base her spine in 2017 and has since used a variety of methods, including cannabis oil, to combat it.

Newton-John is determined that she will beat it as she had done the two previous times. When she was asked why she didn't come out with her diagnosis sooner, she explained that she felt that it was a personal matter that she should keep to herself.

According to iHeartRadio, New-John had also endured an aggressive form of cancer in a car accident, which she and her doctor initially attributed to as the cause of her bout with shoulder cancer in 2013. As time went on, however, it was revealed that there was more to it than she originally thought. 

Newton-John has been fighting the cancer using cannabis oil with marijuana, which she and her husband have been growing on their ranch in Santa Barbara, and she says it's been doing wonders for her.

On top of her use of cannabis oil, she has also been undergoing radiation treatment.

In spite of her various struggles with cancer throughout her life, Newton-John stressed that she feels that there are others in the world who have it much worse than her. She believes that she is just one in many who must battle cancer in all its forms. It is because of this that she remains positive throughout her mission to beat the cancer.

Many fans have taken to social media to show their thoughts and support for the actress-singer. They are hopeful that she will pull through as she had with her previous diagnoses. With this being the third one, friends and fans alike are looking out for her well-being.

On top of their support, many have expressed joy at the fact that her use of cannabis seems to help tremendously in treating the cancer. They believe that this furthers the evidence that the medicinal properties of cannabis can help fight cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
