Olivia Newton John’s cancer fight: Why she can’t walk – and how medical marijuana is helping her through it

Olivia Newton-John’s second-time cancer diagnosis has left her with limited mobility and a need for medical marijuana to ease the pain.

The 68-year-old was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 at the age of 43.  

She underwent a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and breast reconstruction, which left her with a clean bill of health. 

But recent back pain that left her unable to walk revealed her breast cancer was back and it had metastasized to her spine.

The singer underwent radiation treatment to help her stage 4 cancer diagnosis, but she said in an interview Sunday that her husband’s grown medical marijuana has helped her through the pain.
