Olivia Newton-John has heard this news before – and it’s not good, either. Yet again, doctors tell her that she has cancer, and this time it’s in both her breast and her lower back. But while the stage-four status of the disease may be daunting for others, Newton-John tries to keep focus on the good in her life. She shares that positivity with others, too, as much as she is able – but that doesn’t stop her plight from being heartbreaking.

And there’s one facet of the diagnosis that Newton-John can’t face, involving one of the questions that a patient may ask their doctor when they find out they have cancer. The “Physical” singer refuses to learn this information, however, as she believes that it’s a hindrance to both her treatment and her healing.
