“I think the mind plays a big role in the healing process,” explained the actress of 70 years. “When you’re diagnosed with a cancer or a terrifying disease, it gives you a sudden deadline, she added. If you believe the figures, you will ensure that they become a reality. If someone says to you: “you still have six months to live”, it is quite possible that this is the case – because you believe.”

“I feel in great shape”

Olivia Newton-John was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. After undergoing a mastectomy, followed by chemotherapy and made a mammoplasty, she has been the victim of a relapse in 2013. Four years later, she was announced to be suffering from a cancerous tumor in the sacrum. In the beginning of the year, the actress had posted a video on social media to deny rumors announcing it at the threshold of death.

“I am so lucky to have lived through this three times and still be alive, she said to 60 Minutes . (…) There were times when I believed that I would never walk again. But I was determined to do it… Now I am again in full form.”

The actress deals with her disease by using a mixture between alternative and conventional medicine, consuming the cannabis grown by her husband John Easterling. She says medicinal marijuana is a key component of its treatment which help to find sleep, relieve anxiety and soothe his pain.
