Olivia Newton-John shares loving kiss with husband as she's joined by family for cancer walk in Melbourne
Australian icon Olivia Newton-John is battling cancer for the third time but her biggest supporters are always by side.
The 71-year-old stepped out for her annual Wellness Walk and Research Run on Sunday, October 06, in Melbourne, Australia. The event aims to raise funds for people with cancer.
The four-time Grammy award winner was joined by her husband John Easterling and her daughter Chloe Lattanzi and flashed an endearing smile as she greeted cancer survivors and families affected by the illness. She then posed for the shutterbugs and even shared a loving kiss with her husband in front of the cameras.
The 'Grease' star was dressed in a white T-shirt and trousers paired with a light green jacket with her blonde locks and natural make-up. Her husband wore a green jacket and their glamorous daughter also color-coordinated in a short white crop top and khaki green pants.
The singer-songwriter was diagnosed with stage four cancer in 2017 and seemed to be in high spirits as her family warmly embraced her after the walk.
Olivia, who battled with breast cancer in 1992 and again in 2013, opened up about her journey in an interview with CBS This Morning last month. "I'm happy. I'm lucky. I'm grateful. I have much to live for. And I intend to keep on livin' it," she said, adding, "'Why me', has never been a part of it. I never felt victimized... Maybe deep down I knew there was a reason or a purpose for it, or maybe I needed to create one to make it OK for myself. Because it's a decision, 'How am I gonna deal with it?'"
Instead of opting for conventional treatment, she has opted for cannabis therapy to control her pain and to help her sleep. She also promotes the legalization of medical marijuana in Australia after experiencing first-hand benefits of the plant. "I’m a great proponent of it, for general health, for pain, for sleep, for anxiety," she told Tracy Grimshaw in her recent interview on A Current Affair. "I really believe it is important in my journey."
Her husband is her biggest supporter as he grows cannabis for her in their hometown in the US, where it is legal.
