Olivia Newton-John has some exciting health updates to share.
In a Thursday appearance on the Australian talk show, “The Project,” the Grammy-award winner said her health was “fantastic.”
‘I’m doing really well,” Newton-John said to the audience. “Thank you for your love and support, I really appreciate it.”
Newton-John, 71, is battling cancer for the third time. In 1992, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a car accident in 2013, doctors found cancer in her shoulder. In 2018, the “Physical” songstress revealed her stage 4 breast cancer had spread to her back with a tumor at the base of her spine.
When asked if her cancer was stage 4, Newton-John replied: “It was,” before noting she believes she no longer has stage 4 cancer.
“I believe your belief system is part of the healing… at my last MRI, which is an exam where they look inside, things are shrinking, going away, staying the same and I’m living well with it and I’m feeling great,” she said.
Newton-John has had a positive outlook throughout her battle with cancer.
“I just want everyone to know, I’m here, I’m doing great,” she told Entertainment Tonight in August. “I’m doing really well and I’m really healthy.”
“It was a challenging year because I broke my sacrum and I had to learn to walk again and all these things,” Newton-John said at the time. “But I am strong and I am back and I’m feeling good and loving every minute.”
Last year, during an interview with “60 Minutes Australia,” Newton-John revealed that she chooses not to focus on how much time doctors say she has left.
“When you’re given a cancer diagnosis or a scary honest diagnosis, you’re suddenly given a possibility of a time limit,” the singer/actress said during the interview, published Sunday.
She continued: “If somebody tells you, you have six months to live, very possibly you will because you believe that. So for me, psychologically, it’s better not to have any idea of what they expect, or what the last person that has what you have lived, so I don’t tune in.”
