Olivia Newton - John ’s 0 million dying wish. The much loved Aussie icon will leave the bulk of her fortune to Chloe. At crisis point, Olivia Newton - John , 70, had to delay her return to the US because she was physically unable to board the plane.

While the nation is in the throes of a crisis, Olivia has had a decades-long fight of her own. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, the four-time Grammy Award winner has faced a lot.

Over the years, as her cancer receded and reappeared, she has undergone a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and breast reconstruction, while also trialling natural remedies and medical cannabis.

In a recent update to the Herald Sun, Olivia updated that her tumours, which were discovered in her lower back three years ago, are "receding or they're going away or staying the same on a Stage-4 metastatic breast cancer."

Now, she adds that her recovery has been aided by having a positive mindset.

"I have my moments, of course, but 99 per cent of the time I'm positive. You have to make that decision within yourself to be glass half-full," she says.

"I've lived the most amazing life and career, with beautiful people around me. I can't lose sight of that. There are people much worse off than me. I couldn't be happier at the

moment – and, health-wise, I'm doing exceptionally well; I feel great."

Olivia hopes to inspire others to do the same, even in the darkest moments.

"The thought that 'This too shall pass', has gotten me through difficult times," she explains.

"When I speak to people who are suffering, I can speak only from my own experience, but I've been in grief and loss – it's a hard thing to go through.

"One morning, though, you'll wake up and see the sun again. You'll come out the other side."

Olivia will also use her time in Australia to cheer on her daughter, Chloe, 34, who's competing on Dancing With The Stars. But the performer was careful not to offer any advice.

"I encouraged her to just be herself," Olivia says.

"She's in her own dancing shoes and they're beautiful – she'll do great."

While fans are hoping to see Chloe replicate her mother's timeless hits as Sandra Dee in Grease, Olivia is happy for her carve her own path. Although, she'll always be grateful for the 1978 film that made her a star.

"Forty-one years on, it's still phenomenal," she says.

"John [Travolta] and I still can't believe it. I'm so grateful to have been part of that movie and to feel all that love – it's pretty incredible, isn't it?"

Fire Fight Australia will air on Sunday, February 9 at 1pm on Channel Seven, FOX8 and Channel V.
