Beautiful Olivia Newton-John Diagnosed With Breast Cancer for the Second Time

Olivia Newton-John has been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time, the singer’s team revealed in a Tuesday, May 30, statement on her official Facebook page.  “Olivia Newton-John is reluctantly postponing her June U.S. and Canadian concert tour dates. 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,” the statement reads. “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.”

Despite her diagnosis, Newton-John, 68 — who previously beat breast cancer more than 25 years ago — seems optimistic about her future. “I decided on my direction of therapies after consultation with my doctors and natural therapists and the medical team at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia,” the Australian-born star says, per her Facebook page.
Because of her health, Newton-John is postponing her previously scheduled June concert dates. Rescheduled concert dates will be posted at in the next several weeks.
