Olivia Newton-John revealed she had stage four breast cancer two years ago and took the decision to sell most of her tremendous portfolio to help invest in her foundation and improve her wellness center.
A source close to Olivia Newton-John told the New York Post that “Olivia loved helping people. She spent the last two decades of her life giving back. She wanted to leave behind something that would last, and something that her daughter, too, could benefit from.”
Olivia Newton-John had a horse ranch in California where she spent her last days but transferred all the estate to her husband John Easterling.
The source continued “She was in a lot of pain, but she was a fighter. The place was her heaven on Earth and it gave her many calming moments in her final days.”
Olivia Newton-John was a cancer survivor, she battled cancer three times until ultimately it came back , when she initially beat cancer for the first time she founded the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre at Melbourne’s Austin Hospital.
Then in 2005 she also founded the accolated Gaia Retreat & Spa an amazing center in the Bunjalung Country of Byron Bay, also in Australia.
After that she created her own foundation named after her
Last year she spoke about the foundation to Forbes, she went on the record and said that “The idea is to fund research into kinder ways to treat cancer, to prevent cancer, and to live well with cancer. So, all those things, I believe, we will eventually see a world beyond it where it’s just treated as any other illness that you can kind of control and live well with and, of course, hopefully cure it. Living well is something that I do, and I’m hoping that I can help others do that.”
