What type of cancer does Olivia Newton John have?
Olivia was first diagnosed with breast cancer 25 years ago in 1992 and underwent treatment as well as a partial mastectomy for the disease.
She recovered and then became an advocate for breast cancer research and other health issues.
But this month, she revealed that she was battling the disease for a second time after it had returned and spread to her back.
In a statement, Olivia confirmed that she was cancelling her upcoming US and Canadian concert tour dates due to her diagnosis.
The statement read: “The back pain that initially caused her to postpone the first half of her concert tour, has turned out to be breast cancer that has metastasized to the sacrum.
“In addition to natural wellness therapies, Olivia will complete a short course of photon radiation therapy and is confident she will be back later in the year, better than ever, to celebrate her shows.”
