Olivia Newton-John Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Thoughts go out to Olivia Newton-John this morning. 

The singer has revealed that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer which has relapsed. 

Olivia had postponed her June concert dates earlier this month due to what she thought was just back pain due to her sciatica. 

Unfortunately it has been determined that it was in fact breast cancer. 

ONJ's management made the sad announcement on her official Facebook page today. 

"Olivia Newton-John is reluctantly postponing her June U.S. and Canadian concert tour dates," the post began.

"The back pain that initially caused her to postpone the first half of her concert tour, has turned out to be breast cancer that has metastasized to the sacrum.

"In addition to natural wellness therapies, Olivia will complete a short course of photon radiation therapy and is confident she will be back later in the year, better than ever, to celebrate her shows."

The 68-year-old also suffered with breast cancer in the 1990s.

We're sending Olivia our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
