Olivia Newton-John's Cancer Returns

by VVN Music

Olivia Newton-John has announced that her breast cancer has returned.

Newton-John was originally diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, beating it at the time, and went on to become a major advocate for breast cancer research.

In early-May, Oliva announced that she was postponing a number of U.S. concerts due to a "bad issue with her sciatica". At the time, it was said that she had been suffering from the condition, which can cause pain in the back and legs, for awhile.

On Tuesday (May 30), it was announced that all of her U.S. and Canadian dates would be postponed due to the return of the disease and that the breast cancer had spread to her lower back, explaining the pain she had been having.

Her management made the announcement while saying that Olivia was confident she would be back on tour by the fall.

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.

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,” says Olivia Newton-John.

There will be no interview requests accepted at this time as Olivia’s focus is on her treatment and healing. Ticket buyers for the upcoming concerts should contact venues directly about refunds. Rescheduled concert dates will be posted at OliviaNewton-John.com in the coming weeks.

In recent years, Newton-John has done a residency at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, had a number 1 Dance Club song with her daughter, Chloe with You Have to Believe and released the album Liv On in collaboration with Beth Nielsen Chapman and Amy Sky.
