Among the photos were two more recent images of Olivia and Chloe posing together. 

Chloe is an aspiring singer and also runs a medical cannabis farm with her fiancé, James Driskill. 

She and James lived close to Olivia and her husband John Easterling during the pandemic – something for which Olivia said she is forever grateful. 

‘This has been a dream time, to be able to spend a long time with Chloe. It’s a special time,’ the Xanadu actress told Studio 10 during a recent interview.

In light of her diagnosis, Olivia said she doesn’t focus on statistics or time limits. 

‘Positive thinking is so important to living a healthy and happy life.’ 

Her husband John Easterling grows medicinal cannabis for Olivia on their ranch in the U.S to ‘help with her symptoms’.

Olivia said it is a ‘healing plant’ and added: ‘Medicinal cannabis is something that should be available to everyone who is going through a chronic illness or pain’. 

Olivia, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2017 and twice before in 1992 and 2013, has spent years lobbying the Australian government to approve the use of medicinal cannabis for cancer patients.

‘It really is a magical miracle plant.’

Back in 2020, Olivia recalled the terrifying moment she was first diagnosed with the disease.

In a video announcing her foundation at the time, she said she ‘knew immediately that something was wrong’.

‘I am probably one of those people who’s living beyond cancer, living beyond probably what people expected to happen,’ Olivia said. 

Speaking about her diagnosis, she added: ‘I knew immediately something was wrong.

‘I had a mammogram. The mammogram was benign and I had a needle biopsy that was also benign… I don’t say this to scare women, but you have to just trust your instincts.’ 

Olivia explained that she then spoke to her doctor and agreed to get a surgical biopsy, and was then diagnosed with breast cancer.

Back in 2020, Olivia recalled the terrifying moment she was first diagnosed with the disease. 'All this was overwhelming. It was a feeling of dread, terror, the unknown,' she said, adding that she decided to be strong for her daughter Chloe

‘All this was overwhelming. It was a feeling of dread, terror, the unknown,’ she said, adding that she decided to be strong for her daughter Chloe.

‘I made the decision that I would be okay. I had to believe I was going to be okay, that my daughter was the most important thing in my life and I would be okay for her,’ she said.

Olivia has tried a variety of therapies, including meditation, acupuncture, massage and plant medicine, to heal her body – in addition to conventional medicine.

‘I have seen the incredible beauty of the plants and their healing abilities… if I hadn’t had that experience, I wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you about kinder therapies… your body wants to heal itself,’ said the medicinal cannabis advocate.

‘That’s why I’m excited to start this foundation.’

The Olivia Newton-John foundation aims to help fellow cancer sufferers.
