Olivia Newton-John is calling for prayers this week after announcing that her breast cancer has returned and spread to her back.
“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,” read a statement on Newton-John’s social media. “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.”
“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,” Newton-John added.
Newton-John was previously treated for breast cancer in 1992.
“I love u mama. Miss U so much. Will all of u send healing prayers for my mamas back please [sic],” Newton-John’s daughter Chloe wrote in an Instagram post earlier this month. “I believe in the power of positive thinking and energy. Love u all [sic].”
Please send prayers to Olivia Newton-John as she tries to beat cancer again!
