Olivia Newton-John died at the age of 73 after a long battle with breast cancer.
The entertainment veteran, who was born in England and raised in Melbourne, began his long battle with the disease in 1992.
In 2013, he was again diagnosed with cancer, this time in his shoulder after a car accident, but he chose to keep it a secret.
“I thought, ‘I don’t really need to share this… this is my life,'” she later told Sevens Sunday Night.
In May 2017, she announced that her breast cancer had returned and had metastasized to her sacrum, and in 2018, it was revealed that she was battling the disease again.
Newton-John opened up about it in an interview with Sevens Sunday Night at the time.
“I’d be lying if I said I’d never go there,” she said.
“There are moments like that. I’m human, so if I let myself be out there, I can easily create such a big scare. But my husband is always there — he’s always there to support me, and I believe That’s what I’ll win over it, and that’s my goal.”
Speaking to The Guardian in 2020, Newton-John opened up about her life with cancer.
“It’s been a part of my life for so long. I thought something was wrong. When it comes back it’s relatable, but I thought ‘I’ll get it again.”
