JOHN Farnham has revealed Olivia Newton-John has told him she is confident of beating breast cancer a second time.
Newton-John announced yesterday that what she believed was sciatica was breast cancer that metastasised to the sacrum (lower back).
The 68-year-old had been experiencing severe back pain during her US tour, which is on hold while she undergoes a mix of photon radiation and natural wellness therapies.
Farnham, a long time friend and musical collaborator, had been in touch with Newton-John after she shared her health battle with him.
“I’ve spoken to Olivia in the last few days, and, as always, she is very positive,” Farnham said.
“She told me she is feeling good and confident of a total healing. The love and support from family and friends as well as people in general is enormous comfort to her.
“I’ve also spoken to Dr Cebon at Olivia’s Wellness Centre, and he tells me that her positivity is a great asset to her and if anyone can beat this she can.”
The singer’s management said Newton-John was “confident she will be back later in the year, better than ever” to finish her concerts. Fans were instructed to check her website for rescheduled tour dates.
The star first suffered from breast cancer 25 years ago and has since used her own experience to promote awareness of the disease.
Newton-John has released several “new age” albums and she makes frequent trips back to Australia to promote her Cancer and Wellness Centre.
