Olivia Newton-John adopts the active life that empowers her to be an advocate, a singer, and a force for positive change. The singer was a cancer survivor for 25 years. She suffered from breast cancer in 1992.

Life After Fighting Cancer

Naples Daily News recently reported that Olivia Newton-John at 68 still sings like the blonde, blue-eyed crooner in her early 20s when she popped into the U.S. musical scene with singles including "If Not For You" and "Let Me Be There", over four decades ago. The singer performed last week in Seminole Casino.

Journey Of Life

The publication also narrated how and when Olivia Newton-John started her musical career, and her other journey in life, including her battle against breast cancer. Olivia Newton-John fought breast cancer in 1992.

After that, she became an advocate on breast cancer awareness and how women can fight the disease. Olivia founded her own wellness center for breast cancer in Australia.

The Cancer Wellness And Research Center

Olivia Newton-John seemed confounded when she conferred her name to a cancer research hub three years ago. The 68-year-old musician and star defeated breast cancer in the early 90s and her own struggle motivated her to start the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Center in Australia.

She confessed that she was apprehensive about having a wellness hub named after herself but a discussion with her mom changed her mind, The Hamilton Spectator reported. According to her, she was not sure during that time about building the wellness center but her mother convinced her to do the project.

Olivia Newton-John regularly donates funds for the foundation, she even gave a portion of the proceeds of her last concert for future projects of the center. For the actress, doing charity work is her time outside the showbiz limelight.
