Olivia Newton-John 'totally confident' amid second breast cancer battle

Despite battling breast cancer a second time, beloved singer-actress Olivia Newton-John says she is "totally confident" everything will be just fine.

"I am really grateful for and touched by the worldwide outpouring of love and concern. Thank you. I am feeling good and enjoying total support from my family and friends, along with a team of wellness and medical practitioners both here in the US and at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia," the Grease legend told People magazine in a statement released on Wednesday, January 7, 2017. "I'm totally confident that my new journey will have a positive success story to inspire others! Love and light, Olivia."

News that Newton-John was battling breast cancer that had metastasized to her sanctum was first revealed in a Facebook post on May 30, 2017.

"Olivia Newton-John is reluctantly postponing her June U.S. and Canadian concert tour dates. The back pain that initially caused her to postpone the first half of her concert tour, has turned out to be breast cancer that has metastasized to the sacrum," the post read.

It continued, "In addition to natural wellness therapies, Olivia will complete a short course of photon radiation therapy and is confident she will be back later in the year, better than ever, to celebrate her shows."

Added Newton-John, "I decided on my direction of therapies after consultation with my doctors and natural therapists and the medical team at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia.

Newton-John successfully beat breast cancer in 1992.
