Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund (ONJFoundationFund.org).”

The statement continued, “Olivia is survived by her husband John Easterling; daughter Chloe Lattanzi; sister Sarah Newton-John; brother Toby Newton-John; nieces and nephews Tottie, Fiona and Brett Goldsmith; Emerson, Charlie, Zac, Jeremy, Randall, and Pierz Newton-John; Jude Newton-Stock, Layla Lee; Kira and Tasha Edelstein; and Brin and Valerie Hall.”

She was a four-time Grammy Award-winner known for hits including “Physical,” “I Honestly Love You,” and “Have You Never Been Mellow.”

Olivia was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. The cancer went into remission, but returned years later. She battled breast cancer again in 2017.

Olivia‘s last appearance was not too long ago. Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones during this difficult time. RIP.
