After 25 years in remission, Olivia Newton-John learned her breast cancer had returned and spread to her lower back in May. Today's Natalie Morales sat down with the Grease star in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia to discuss how she's fighting cancer a second time around.
The early signs of the cancer's return weren't entirely clear to Newton-John. The actress and singer had been performing at the time and thought that the pain she experienced while walking was due to sciatica.
"I would kind of grit my teeth and take a couple of asprin and go on," she told Morales.
Unfortunately, she was wrong.
"I guess I was sort of surprised," she said in regards to learning the news. "and I never would have associated because, in my mind, it was over. I had finished with it."
