'Feeling Great!': Olivia Newton-John Shares Cancer Update With Fans
Olivia Newton-John has revealed that she's "living well" following her diagnosis of stage four cancer.
Appearing on The Project with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi by her side, the Grease icon pumped both fists into the air when Lisa Wilkinson broached the subject, asking how her health was going.
"Fantastic!" she said. "I'm doing really well and thank you for all your love and support, I really appreciate it," she said, addressing fans around the country.
"It's stage four cancer?" Lisa asked, to which Olivia gave a firm, optimistic response.
"It was," she replied, adding that her "belief system was part of the healing".
Olivia explained that her last MRI had shown that "things are shrinking, going away or staying the same".
"I’m living well with it, I’m going great," she said, before a huge round of applause from The Project audience.
Olivia was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 with the cancer later returning in 2013. Four years later, she revealed her stage four diagnosis.
In 2012, the iconic actor lent her name to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research and Wellness Centre at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne -- which Chloe is hoping to win $50,000 for if she wins Dancing With The Stars.
Lattanzi made her mark on Dancing With The Stars this week with dance partner Gustavo, with the pair giving us a sublime foxtrot that scored a very respectable 18 from the judges.
Cheering Chloe on was her mum, Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly's widow, Patricia Ward Kelly, who shared a special photograph of Chloe as a baby from Gene's archives.
She noted that Gene was 'responsible' for Chloe's existence, having introduced her parents on the set of 'Xanadu' in 1980.
