Pop songstress and actress Olivia Newton-John 'has weeks to live' as she struggles against her third bout of cancer. Ever since the early 90s, the iconic singer has had been battling breast cancer. News website Now to Love reports the 70-year-old is "clinging to life".
Meanwhile, RadarOnline reports that the Grease star is hoping she can last to see her only child Chloe Lattanzi marry long-time partner James Driskill. An unnamed 'insider' told Radar Online last week: 'Olivia's bodily functions appear to be shutting down, but she refuses to let go until she makes it through [her daughter] Chloe's wedding day.'
Though there is has been no official word yet about Newton-John's health, fans are already calling for prayers for the singer.
Although Newton-John has always seen herself as "spiritual," she prefers to be what's called "meta-religious." In fact, her diverse faith practices and broad beliefs is what helped her through her battle with breast cancer. She said she had so many songs floating through her head while she couldn't sleep due to chemotherapy that she had to write them all down. As a "thriver," not a survivor, Olivia released an album called Grace and Gratitude that contains what she calls healing songs. They drew inspiration from all of the world's religions.
"I believe that all human beings are connected, like pearls on a chain. We have in common the search for peace, love and compassion. It is my hope that we can accept and respect each other's [religious] traditions, no matter what our personal beliefs. This is my intention - to make music that helps to heal the heart and connect us to each other."
