Olivia Newton-John shares her mindset amid cancer battle: 'I'm strong'

Olivia Newton-John is letting her fans know she’s doing well amid her third bout with breast cancer.

“I just want everyone to know I’m here, I’m doing great!” she told Entertainment Tonight this week at the Industry Dance Awards and Cancer Benefit Concert. “I’m doing really well, I’m really healthy.”

The 70-year-old “Grease” icon, who was diagnosed with breast cancer for the third time and broke her sacrum last year, spoke positively about her recovery.

“I had to learn to walk again and all these things but I’m strong and I’m back and I’m feeling good, and loving every minute,” she said.

She was diagnosed for the first time in 1992.

Newton-John, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the event, was also presented with a donation for her Cancer Wellness & Research Center in Australia, and told ET she’s happy to be known for her time on screen but would love to be recognized for her philanthropy work.

“I’m happy if I’m entertaining people, but I’m happiest when I’m helping people, she said.

At the start of 2019, she debunked rumors that she was near death, saying that any of those claims were “greatly exaggerated.”
