Olivia Newton-John has cancer. The 69-year-old actress was diagnosed last year. It is the third time in thirty years that the Australian star is diagnosed with cancer.


“My husband is always there for me and I am convinced that I will overcome the disease, that is my goal”, says Newton-John in the Sunday Night program.

The tumor would be located at the bottom of her spine this time. In 1992, Newton-John received the diagnosis of breast cancer. In 2013 she got to experience this again, but this time there were metastases in her shoulder.


Newton-John experienced in 1978 her worldwide breakthrough in the movie Grease , in which she was seen side by side with John Travolta. She also built up a career as a musician. Her latest album is called Liv On and appeared in 2016.
