Olivia Newton-John is a lot of things, but "complainer" is not one of them. And so Do not stop believing It was the perfect name for his latest memoir, which chronicles his incredible career as well as his struggles. At age 70, the icon fights stage IV breast cancer for the third time, but with the support of her friends and family – especially her husband. John Easterling – she is ready to fight and does not let anything knock her down.
"I feel lucky to be experimenting for the third time, you know? You have to find the silver lining; there are good in all bad situations," says the singer in the latest edition of We weekly. "I am very positive.I am human, I have my moments of fear and anxiety like everyone else, but generally I choose to be positive because you create your world with what you think.And if you think of dark thoughts, it will create a world If you think positive thoughts, create a positive world around you and attract positive people to you.I'm very lucky in all these areas, I have the best husband in the world and the best daughter.I'm lucky. "
O Grease The star fought against breast cancer in 1992 and underwent mastectomy surgery and partial reconstruction. She was diagnosed again in 2013 and a third time in 2018.
Newton-John's husband has been extremely helpful during his battle – "he's brilliant," she says We – and helped her with treatment; both are advocates of the use of cannabis to cure.
"My husband grows up for me – in California you can do that. He made me incredible dyes that helped me with pain, sleep and anxiety, and there are thousands of studies now on the healing properties of cannabis and how they are discovering it, "says the singer. "It will eventually be accepted as a cure for many diseases."
In 2018, Newton-John was admitted to her own establishment, the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research and Wellness Center in Australia, after her cancer returned; she stayed there for three weeks, something she tells in her book.
Now she has decided to help raise even more money for the hospital by donating some of her most valuable items: Grease wardrobe, including their leather jacket and leggings, since they have just entered the closet 40 years ago.
"For several years, in fact, I took the jacket on the road and dressed it until my manager said," This is the original jacket? " I said, "It's". He could not believe I was taking it on the road, "says the Grammy winner. "I had no idea Grease I would continue and continue and so on. So I was wearing the jacket! But I kept everything and I looked like that after that.
