Celebrity News : Grease singer-actress Olivia Newton-John said that her breast cancer reappeared and spread to the lower back.
Newton-John, who became a champion of healthy living and medical research after her first fight with breast cancer in 1992, will undergo radiation therapy and expect to return to work before the end of the year, its representative said in a statement.
Olivia said: “I am really grateful for and touched by the worldwide outpouring of love and concern. Thank you.
“I am feeling good and enjoying total support from my family and friends, along with a team of wellness and medical practitioners both here in the US and at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia. I’m totally confident that my new journey will have a positive success story to inspire others!”
The statement said that the singer of “Physical” will postpone its tours in the United States and Canada scheduled for June.
“The back pain that in principle made her postpone the first half of her concert tour has turned out to be breast cancer that has metastasized to the sacrum,” he said.
Born in Britain and raised in Australia, Newton-John began her singing career with pop hits such as “If Not for You” and “I Honestly Love You”. She obtained international fame in 1978 with the adaptation to the cinema of the musical “Grease”, in which it matched with John Travolta.
38 years after its release, Grease is still the most watched musical in history. A pop supernova that grossed $ 400 million at the world box office, with an unforgettable soundtrack even more present than the movie. Her interpretation of Sandy Olsson, the good girl who one day leaves the pastel-colored cardigans and appears with beaten hair, dressed in leather, with red platforms and smoking, to sing with a baffled Danny Zuko (John Travolta) “You ‘ Re The One That I Want “.
It is one of the many iconic scenes left by the film, which not only shaped the career of the Australian, also eclipsed some of his other attempts. It is worth remembering that before Grease, Olivia had had a dozen discs inclined to the country made next to its historical collaborator John Farrar, and that after Grease it turned to the pop and the modern sounds to triumph in the charts of the 80, with hits Such as “Physical”, “Magic”, “Xanadu” or “Twist of Fate”.
