Olivia Newton-John - breast cancer survivor


Olivia Newton-John received her breast cancer diagnosis the same weekend in 1992 that she learned of the death of her father. The news forced her to cancel plans of a comeback album and tour.

Once in remission Newton-John became one of the most outspoken celebrity cancer campaigners. In 2008 the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre was opened in Melbourne with funds raised by the star.

She also launched a website for Liv-Kit - a self breast examination product and distributed one million of the kits for breast Cancer Awareness month in association with fitness franchise Curves.

Newton-John also has her own campaign website for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre for donations.
