“We all know we’re going to die, but I think we spend our lives in denial. It’s extremely personal, so it’s hard to put into words," Newton-John, who had a 30-year battle with breast cancer, told Sarah Grynberg on her "A Life of Greatness" podcast. "I feel that we are all one thing, and I’ve had experiences with spirits and spirit life. I believe there is something that happens."

Newton-John was first diagnosed with cancer in 1992 and again in 2013 and 2017. Using her own illness to help others, as she became an advocate for breast cancer detection and opened her own public hospital — the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia — in 2012, Newton-John had been very open about her cancer journey.

"I'm so lucky that I've been through this three times and I'm still here," she said in an August 2019 60 Minutes Australia interview. "We know we're gonna die at some point, and we don't know when it is. When you're given a cancer diagnosis or a scary honest diagnosis, you're suddenly given a possibility of a time limit. So every day is a gift."

Newton-John is survived by husband John Easterling and daughter Chloe Lattanzi.

Page Six first reported on Newton-John's thoughts on death.
