During her battle with cancer, the star turned to plant-based medication, notably using medicinal cannabis. Believing that she would “win over it”, Newton-John even requested for Australia, where she grew up, to adopt the laws of the US state (where she lived) to allow marijuana to be used for medicinal purposes.
Due to this and following her own cancer diagnosis, Newton-John became a prominent campaigner setting up the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Research Centre, in Melbourne, where she hoped that with research better treatment would be found.
“My dream is that, in Australia soon, it will be available to all the cancer patients and people going through cancer that causes pain,” she commented on the topic of legalising medicinal cannabis.
After going through photon radiation therapy in addition to natural wellness therapies after consulting her own medical team via her Research Centre, both Newton-John and her husband, Easterline, believed that the star could overcome the cancer that had plagued her life once more.
