Olivia Newton John talks about breast cancer

Olivia Newton-John isn't just a breast cancer supporter - she's also a survivor. The Australian singer and actress was diagnosed with the disease in 1992 and made a full recovery the following year.

And although she's remained healthy for almost two decades, Newton-John isn't stopping her fight against the illness. In fact, the former Grease star spoke with the Associated Press about her charitable efforts.

"I'm building a cancer and wellness centre in Melbourne, Australia [and] I have a 'live aid' which is a self-examination tour for women to encourage them to do regular self-examinations," she told the news outlet.

Olivia isn't alone in her fight against breast cancer. In fact, the American Cancer Society reports that one in eight women will be diagnosed with the disease at some point during their lifetime.

However, 62-year-old remains optimistic that all the hard work people are doing now will result in a cure.

"There's more and more being done and I believe we'll see an end to cancer in my lifetime," she told the news source. "That's my dream, wouldn't that be wonderful?"
