Olivia Newton-John isn't letting her recurrent cancer slow her down. The brave "Let's Get Physical" singer and Grease movie icon, after repeated denials, has finally confirmed RadarOnline.com's exclusive report that she's secretly fighting cancer for third time. On Sunday, September 16, in Melbourne, Australia, however, she looked stunning and determined as she raised funds for her cancer research organization. Scroll through Radar's gallery for more!
In an emotional interview with Channel 7's Sunday Night last week, Newton-John opened up about her secret battle with cancer in 2013 — and vowed that she will continue to work to help other cancer victims.
The singer, 69, delighted fans at her annual wellness walk and run in Melbourne.
Newton-John recently revealed that she'd secretly battled a second bout of breast cancer back in 2013. The superstar, who is currently fighting the disease for a third time, explained why she chose not to go public with the 2013 diagnosis at the time. She told the news program: "I thought 'It's my life' and I just decided to keep it to myself."
In 1992, Newton-John underwent a partial mastectomy for a tumor in her breast when she was just 43 years old. In May 2017, the "Hopelessly Devoted to You" singer announced that her breast cancer had come back and had "metastasized to the sacrum."
Radar exclusively reported just weeks ago that her cancer has returned with a vengeance — as the killer disease had spread into the bones of her lower back.
Newton-John had cancelled some personal appearances, but told the media last month she was doing fine. She confided in Australia's Sunday Night earlier this week, however, that she has cancer in her lower spine. But the songbird is a fighter and she said, "My husband's always there…to support me, and I believe I will win over it and that's my goal." She's treating the disease with both "modern" medicines and natural remedies.
