Cancer-Stricken Olivia Newton-John Doesn't Know How Long She's Got Left To Live

Cancer-Stricken Olivia Newton-John Doesn't Know How Long She's Got Left To Live

Olivia Newton-John has revealed she doesn't know how long she has to live, as she battles breast cancer for the third time.

The Grease star, 70, revealed last year that she was currently in treatment for cancer that had returned in 2017.

She was first diagnosed with the disease in 1992, and later secretly battled the disease again in 2013.

Speaking to 60 Minutes this week, Olivia said: "I'm so lucky that I've been through this three times and I'm still here. I'm living with it.

"When you're given a cancer diagnosis or a scary illness diagnosis, you are suddenly given a possibility of a time limit.

"The truth is, you could get hit by a truck tomorrow, you don't know so every day is a gift, particularly now.

"If you believe the statistics, you're going to make them happen. If somebody tells you, 'you have six months to live', very possibly you will - because you believe that."

"Happy New Year everyone, this is Olivia Newton-John and I just want to say that the rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated, to quote a very famous quote," she said in a video on Twitter.

"And I am doing great and want to wish all of you the happiest, healthiest 2019 as possible and thank you all for your wonderful love and support for me and for my Olivia Newton-John cancer wellness centre in Melbourne, Australia."
