After 30 years of struggle and treatment with plants harvested by her husband, Olivia Newton-John died on her ranch, near her family
After a long battle of thirty years against breast cancer, Olivia Newton-John finally left this world on August 8, 2022. She leaves behind a beautiful cultural heritage, and an important lesson in life: never give up.
The third recurrence of his cancer was fatal to him. Olivia Newton-John is no longer of this world. A true planetary star, the singer and actress gained notoriety thanks to the film ¨Grease¨ (1978), in which she starred alongside John Travolta.
We also owe him hits like ¨You’re the One that I Want¨.
After a heavy treatment of several surgeries to cure her cancer, she had to learn to walk again. Surrounded by her loved ones, including her husband and her only daughter, Chloe, the actress has always shown incredible determination.
Unfortunately, she will not be able to attend the wedding of her only daughter.
HIS FIGHT AGAINST DISEASE
The least we can say is that Olivia Newton-John’s fight will have been long and painful. She faced the cancer several times in his life, and the third was unfortunately the last.
His health problems began in the early 90s.
In 1992, he was first diagnosed with cancer breast. Dejected, but not defeated, the actress embarks on a merciless fight which will push her to undergo heavy treatments and several operations including a mastectomy (partial removal of the breast), chemotherapy and breast reconstruction.
Not wanting other women to experience the same nightmare, the actress has done everything possible to encourage women around the world to get tested.
Leaving no stone unturned, she founded the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Center, a center to support women suffering from cancer breast. She also founded the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, which pursues the same objective as her center.
Her treatment worked, and Olivia gradually regained her health. Unfortunately, the sky falls again in 2017: she again suffers from the same cancer. That year, she had to cancel part of her tour because of health concerns, but she had no idea that it was actually a relapse of her cancer.
His medical team had published the communicated next :
¨It turns out that the back pain that had initially forced Olivia to postpone the first part of her tour is in fact breast cancer whose metastases have reached the sacrum. In addition to natural wellness treatments, Olivia will undergo a short session of radiotherapy¨.
The treatment went well and the actress continued to move forward with the unwavering support of her husband John Easterling. Moreover, she treated her cancer by following a classic protocol based on radiation, to which she added cannabis oil that her husband harvested in California.
Alas, in 2019, Olivia learns a news likely to destabilize anyone in the same situation: her tumor has reached stage 4, the last level of severity of this cancer. In other words, the level of metastases in his body was quite high.
In the Australian television program ¨60 minutes¨, Olivia spoke about the way in which she approached her illness on a psychological level. She had said :
¨It’s better for my mental health not to know what the doctors predict or what the people who have suffered this before me have experienced¨.
In February 2021, she gave an interview to the American magazine People. She started with express gratitude towards life:
“I didn’t expect to live this long! I feel blessed.”
She went on to praise her husband’s efforts:
¨I am lucky to be married to a wonderful man who helps me in all areas¨,
did she have declared.
¨Olivia Newton-John passed away peacefully at her ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends¨.
He did not fail to salute the courage and self-sacrifice of the one who shared his life for many years:
¨Olivia has been a beacon of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer¨,
were we able read.
THE LAST YEARS OF HIS LIFE
During her long fight against this disease, the star of the movie Grease, was able to count on her husband, her audience, but also on her only daughter.
In the past, she was married to comedian Matt Lattanzi, who is also the father of her daughter Chloe Rose (born in 1986). Olivia and Chloe have maintained a fairly complex relationship, in particular because of the latter’s addictions.
For several years, Chloe suffered from body dysmorphia. It is an obsessive-compulsive disorder that causes the patient to deny his own body. She found refuge in cocaine and alcohol, to the point of developing an addiction to these substances.
One of his relatives had declared this to The Sun magazine in 2016:
¨She is completely obsessed, she absolutely wants to have a Barbie body and she is never thin enough¨.
This situation created many tensions with her mother, who could not bear to see her in such a state. Fortunately, she was able to get out of it, in particular thanks to James Driskil (her fiancé at the time).
After this long period of discord, mother and daughter have healed their relationship, and Chloe has supported her mother during her last days. Unfortunately, she left without realizing one of her dreams: to attend her daughter’s wedding.
At the announcement of his deadmany tributes poured in from all walks of life, and one of them was particularly noticed.
John Travolta, who starred with her in the movie that made her famous, ¨Grease¨, saluted her memory with a poignant post.
¨My dear Olivia, you have made our lives so much better. Your example was amazing. I love you so much. We will meet again along the road and we will be together again. Faithful, from the day I first saw you and forever. Your Danny, your John¨,
does he have job on Instagram.
RIP Olivia Newton-John.
