Olivia Newton-John discovered she has cancer and canceled her ongoing tour. the singer announced it on Facebook Tuesday afternoon.
“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 68-year-old Grease actress and singer’s rep said in a statement. “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.”
Olivia plans on continuing the tour later this year when she is better. “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,” Olivia added in a statement.
