When Olivia Newton-John received her third cancer diagnosis in 2018, she sought treatment from her own facility, the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Center. The singer revealed she went "undercover" without anyone knowing she was there. Keep reading for more.
Olivia, 70, told Entertainment Tonight, "Nobody knew I was there, so I was undercover boss in the hospital — on purpose."
"I was using a walker, so I’d wear a beanie and glasses and masks, so no one would know who I was,” she confessed about learning how to walk again after having the tumor removed.
“I didn’t want people to know because I didn’t want it to be out there in the public that I was in the hospital,” she said.
The former Grease star also addressed using cannabis to help her heal. “Cannabis has been incredible for me for pain and for sleep and for anxiety. It’s an incredible plant that is helping so many people with different issues,” she revealed.
The singer was in the middle of a breast cancer walk when she felt excruciating pain. She went to the hospital where doctors discovered the tumor on her spine had caused her pelvis to fracture in September 2018.
This was the third time Olivia had been diagnosed with cancer — the first time was when she had breast cancer in 1992. It returned again in 2017.
