Most of us remember Olivia Newton John in her role as the bright-eyed teenage female lead in the classic musical movie “Grease.” Now, she’s fighting for her life for the second time, and her daughter says she’ll use CBD Oil to treat cancer.
When Olivia was just 43, she fought off breast cancer and won. But now, at the age of 68, she faces a new cancer diagnosis.
Olivia’s daughter, Chloe, says her mom will beat this. The Daily Mail reports on the news that made TV entertainment journalist Richard Wilkins break down and cry on live TV.
Cancer: second time around for Olivia
Chloe thanked fans for their love and concern after Olivia’s second breast cancer diagnosis saying that if anyone can beat this, her mom can. She will use CBD oil to treat cancer, using it in conjunction with conventional treatments. Chloe says she’s sure it will help her mom, referring to studies that found CBD to suppress the growth and spread of cancer.

Olivia reportedly gave her daughter a fresh start last year when she loaned her and her fiancé, James Driskill, the money to set up a legal marijuana farming business in Oregon. However, sources say the money wasn’t directly meant to go into a cannabis business. Instead, Olivia wanted to help Chloe get settled in a new home state.
Chloe apparently battled with cocaine addiction and eating disorders in the past and recently posted an Instagram image of cannabis plants tagged “medicine,” leading to speculation that she may use the plant to overcome these problems.
Positive attitude and CBD oil to treat cancer
John Farnham, a family friend for many years, said Olivia is positive that she can beat cancer again. He said she is determined to fight and win and that she sounded very positive when he spoke to her about her diagnosis.
From online comments, it seems that many people love Olivia and wish her well. But Chloe is much less popular. Some people commented that she made her “CBD oil to treat cancer” statement to shamelessly promote her fledgling marijuana business through her famous mom’s misfortune.
Conventional meds as part of treatment
Although there have been stories about people discontinuing conventional therapies in favor of CBD oil to treat cancer, there is very little evidence that it works. Of course, that also means there’s little or no evidence to prove it can’t work, but we are relieved to hear that Olivia will give both modern and herbal medicine a chance.
Should she recover, as so many people around the world hope she will, we won’t be able to tell which treatment worked best, but we will still have our sweetheart. That’s a thought to hold onto. Get well soon, Olivia!
