I was SO sorry to hear this morning that Olivia Newton-John has passed away, aged 73 - I am shedding tears too.

She has been an amazing inspiration to all with breast cancer and a very vocal advocate for the use of alternate medicines (cannabis & cannabis oil) for breast cancer treatment over the 30 years that she had BC, 'specially since the Mets diagnosis 5 years ago.

Thank you for the music and the inspiration 

RIP Olivia

    Such sad news this morning & I too have shed tears over this inspirational women. She was a beautiful soul that touched so many lives. Her public battle with BC always came second to her wish for helping others going through the same journey. Her legacy will live on with her Cancer Research & Wellness Centre. 
    RIP Olivia. Thanks for the lives you touched & the many you have helped. Another angel in heaven xx <3

    I’ve been feeling sad all day about this. She’s been a hope and inspiration to so many and has done incredible work in the field to help others. I think we should continue to live with hope since she lived many years post initial diagnosis 💟.

    I agree.  It is very sad for all family and fans to lose Olivia.  A lovely, accomplished and sincere lady.  She battled long and hard with her BC.  Let's all remember that she was in a more prominent and financial position and if we were that fortunate we'd all have accomplished similar as we'd have the same goals.  May she rest in peace.  🌺
