Olivia Newton-John lost her battle with breast cancer today according to her husband. “Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time.

“Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund (

“Olivia is survived by her husband John Easterling; daughter Chloe Lattanzi; sister Sarah Newton-John; brother Toby Newton-John; nieces and nephews Tottie, Fiona and Brett Goldsmith; Emerson, Charlie, Zac, Jeremy, Randall, and Pierz Newton-John; Jude Newton-Stock, Layla Lee; Kira and Tasha Edelstein; and Brin and Valerie Hall.”

Newton-John was basically an unknown actress and singer at the start of 1978, but by the end of the year, everyone knew her name and fell in love with her thanks to a little musical called Grease. She captured our hearts as Sandy, and we have remained hopelessly devoted to her ever since.

Along the way, she told us to get Physical, and we did. Granted, not in the way the video intended. She also sang about Magic, Twist of Fate, and Xanadu.

The latter might not have been a highlight of her career, but the movie was what it was. And she made it special. The beloved actress made everything she did special.

Back in 1992, Newton-John was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time. She successfully beat it and remained in remission for 25 years. It seems like she beat it again. But then, five years later, it returned, and it was stage 4. She tried several holistic treatments that helped. But sadly, it finally won.

There are three ways we can honor her today. We can watch her movies and TV appearances, listen to her music, and by donating to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation, which offers natural ways to fight breast cancer.
