Actress and singer-songwriter, Olivia Newton-John is struggling with breast cancer, which is in the fourth stage, and as a guest on the show "Today", she told how she feels and talked about her health. “I feel pretty good. Although there are days when my whole body hurts", said Olivia, adding "anyone that has gone on this journey with cancer, it’s unknown destinations and surprises and turns." To alleviate the pain caused by her severe illness, Olivia uses cannabis grown by her husband. The actress said that he is her biggest support and that she is really happy despite her illness.    
        As a reminder, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. After chemotherapy and surgery, she recovered, but her tumor returned in 2013, and then in 2018. "I was lucky to be still alive… When they diagnose you with cancer or give you a bad diagnosis, they usually give you a period of time, they tell you how much you have left. If someone tells you that you have another six months to live, you will probably live that long because you believed in it. I don't want statistics, I'm not part of the statistics," Olivia once told the media.   By: Sarah R.
