Olivia Newton-John, 71, admits she’s ‘feeling great’ as she discusses her stage-four breast cancer

Olivia Newton-John has revealed she’s ‘feeling great’ despite her battle with stage four breast cancer.

The 71-year-old star, who was diagnosed with the disease in 2017 for the third time, appeared on Wednesday’s edition of Lorraine to discuss her ongoing fight.

The actress spoke to showbiz correspondent Ross King about her health, as well as her close bond with her daughter Chloe Rose Lattanzi, 33.


Quizzed about her health, Olivia said: ‘I’m feeling great thank you, I was sick earlier in the year but I am doing better now.
‘I feel a lot of love from people and a lot of prayers and they really help.’

Olivia also discussed her fantastic relationship with her daughter Chloe, who she raises with her first husband Matt Lattanzi.

On her close bond with her daughter, she said: ‘We have a very special relationship, she’s a wonderful girl.
‘Actually she tells me that as a little girl when I was on tour she would put on Grease to help her go to sleep.

‘I don’t know how long I was gone, but she knows every word, every song!’

Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017. She had previously battled the disease twice, in 1992 and 2013.

The star has made no secret of the fact she uses medical marijuana to deal with pain and improve her quality of life while undergoing other treatments.
Speaking during the Wellness Walk and Research Run in Melbourne earlier this month, the actress told the gathered crowd: ‘I’m right here, right now, alive and healthy.’

‘I was flat on my back in the centre [the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre] and this year, through treatment and medicinal cannabis, I am feeling fantastic.

‘I hope to be able to soon offer that to everyone – that’s my dream.’

Olivia has continued to try and change minds and legislation about the use of the drug for those battling illness.

The star attended the event alongside her daughter Chloe and her husband John Easterling, who she wed in 2008.
