Olivia Newton John has made a return to social media, posting an update on her second cancer battle – or “cancer to wellness journey”, as she calls it – to Facebook on Wednesday.
She confirmed at the end of May that she is battling the insidious disease for a second time, after beating breast cancer back in the ’90s. This time, the cancer had spread to her sacrum, a bone at the base of the spine, a discovery which was made by doctors treating her for what they thought was sciatica, a common back complaint.
Newton John’s daughter, Chloe Lattanzi posted a brief update on her mum recently, but this time it’s from the star herself, and she sounds to be in great spirits.
'I am really grateful for and touched by the worldwide outpouring of love and concern for me over the last few months,' she writes.
'Thank you. I am feeling good and enjoying total support from my family, friends and my loyal fans. I ąm totally confident that my new journey will have a positive success story to inspire others!'
