Olivia Newton-John has offered an update on her breast cancer diagnosis.
The 71-year-old actress opened up at the G’Day USA event on Saturday, revealing that she has no plans of letting cancer slow her down.
“Life is a gift and I’ve had an amazing life and I intend to keep going with it and I want to help other people with cancer of course,” she said (via People).

“I have my wellness center in Melbourne and I want to see it in my lifetime so other people don’t have to suffer,” added Newton-John at the gala, where money was raised for wildfire relief in Australia.
Newton-John’s first cancer diagnosis came in 1992 before fighting it off again in 2013. In 2017, however, Newton-John was told that the cancer had spread to her bones.
“I’m winning over it well and that’s how I see it,” she said of her illness. “I don’t think about it a lot, to be honest. Denial is a really good thing and I’m getting stronger and better all the time! I’m doing well!”

John Travolta, who co-starred in “Grease” with Newton-John, was also at the event and spoke about her optimistic attitude.
“Olivia is a survivor and she’s smart and she’s got a lot of life in her and I think she looks at it from the glass half full always and that’s her beautiful, natural approach towards life and I think we all need to do that,” said Travolta, 65.
In September of 2019, Newton-John was interviewed by Gayle King, when she said: “I’m happy. I’m lucky. I’m grateful. I have much to live for. And I intend to keep on living it.”
“‘Why me?’ has never been a part of it,” she said. “But I never felt victimized… Maybe deep down I knew there was a reason or a purpose for it, or maybe I needed to create one to make it OK for myself. Because, again, it’s a decision: ‘How am I gonna deal with it?’”

Newton-John told King that she’s “gonna live longer” than what the statistics surrounding her prognosis have implied.
