Olivia Newton-John Reveals She's Battling Cancer for a Third Time

Olivia Newton-John, 69, reveals the tragic cancer diagnosis she kept secret

Olivia Newton-John has revealed that she is sadly battling with cancer for a third time.

The "Grease" star, who will turn 70 on September 26, told Australian show "Sunday Night" about the discovery of her third tumor and the more natural treatment she's using to fight it during a candid interview about her legacy.

She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. A new breast cancer was discovered in 2013, which had spread to her shoulder.

"I thought, 'It's my life, ' and I just chose to keep it to myself, '" Newton-John told Australia's Channel Seven.

Facing cancer for a third time, the singer said she doesn't allow herself to get scared, not too much anyway.

"No, I don't go there".

The Hamilton County Coroner's office identified the victims as Pruthvi Kandepi, 25; Luis Calderon, 48; and Richard Newcomer, 64. Although people tried to get her attention before she entered the building, she was wearing headphones and did not hear them.

"The chorus goes, 'On those days that nobody wants to know you and all your dreams keep falling on stony ground, don't stop believing you'll get by, '" she said.

The Australian singer and actress, who first found fame in the hit movie-musical Grease, told Australia's 7 network that she was "treating it naturally and doing really well".

Olivia Newton-John performs at Cobb Energy Centre on April 9, 2017, in Atlanta, Georgia.

She bounced back and returned to the stage, but last month, she had to cancel two speaking appearances amid reports suggesting she was sick again.

During an interview on United States television in 2017, Newton-John said she was grateful to still be able to sing and perform after so many years and thanked her fans. I see as part of my mission. She's cut sugar out completely, which has caused her to lose a lot of weight and she's undergone radiation treatments and is also taking cannabis oil for the pain.

"Cancer is something I will need to stay on top of for the rest of my long life", she writes in the book, according to the Herald Sun. "They help with pain, they help with sleep". "I live in this handsome place", Olivia is a fighter and remains incredibly positive about her fate. I have an incredible career. "I have nothing to really complain about".
