Sheryl Crow wishes Olivia Newton-John ‘the best’ after cancer diagnosis
Sheryl Crow is wishing Olivia Newton-John "the best" following her cancer diagnosis.
The ‘First Cut Is the Deepest’ hitmaker – who underwent a lumpectomy and radiotherapy in 2006 after she found out she had non-invasive breast cancer – has reached out to the ‘Grease!’ star after she announced she has metastatic breast cancer that’s spread to her sacrum – 25 years after she first fought the disease – and told her to stay strong spiritually and mentally in order to get through the ordeal.
Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight’, she said: "I’ve only met her maybe once, and I love her. I have a lot of respect for her. I was a huge fan, and still am a fan. So I’m wishing her the best. Olivia, I didn’t know this but I know how strong you are and how spiritual you are and I know you’re on top of your health. I’m wishing you the best."
The 55-year-old singer – who found out she had a benign brain tumour in 2011 that doctors are monitoring – wants to encourage people to look after their health.
She explained: "I’m constantly telling people, particularly women because I have a very big female fan base, ‘Make sure and know your family history and make sure and be diligent about getting your mammograms. Until we have a cure, early detection is the best we have."
Meanwhile, Olivia is "confident" her cancer battle will be a "positive success story".
She said in a statement recently: "I am really grateful for and touched by the worldwide outpouring of love and concern. Thank you. I am feeling good and enjoying total support from my family and friends, along with a team of wellness and medical practitioners both here in the US and at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia. I’m totally confident that my new journey will have a positive success story to inspire others! Love and light, Olivia."
And the ‘Physical’ singer, 68, is already feeling better after undergoing a short course of photon radiation therapy and other natural treatments.
