"Feeling great": Olivia Newton-John provides update on cancer battle

Olivia Newton-John has plenty to be grateful for.

Newton-John has been battling stage 4 metastatic breast cancer since 2017, but that hasn't dimmed her light despite being diagnosed with the disease three times.

"I'm so lucky to still be doing all these things," Newton-John told People. "I don't think I imagined living this long! I feel very blessed."

The 72-year-old revealed she has been "feeling great" and credits the unwavering support she has received from her husband John Easterling.

"I'm very lucky to be married to a wonderful man who is a plant medicine man, and he has great knowledge," she said. "Now he's growing medicinal cannabis for me, and it just has been wonderful. It helps me in every area."

Newton-John has been quarantining in California with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi. The actress has admitted that she's been enjoying spending quality time with her.

"I worked my whole life, and the longest period I can remember being home was my pregnancy with Chloe and the first year or two of her life," Newton-John said. "So it's been wonderful reconnecting with my baby. She is my reason to be."

Newton-John established a foundation to finding new ways to fight breast cancer. The actress has been through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation in her fight to beat the disease.
