Olivia Newton-John, 69, is fighting cancer for a third time after recently revealing she kept her second bout with the illness private in 2013.

And despite ongoing treatment for a tumour in her lower back, the Australian actress and singer has remained positive, upbeat, and resilient in the face of adversity.

Appearing on Channel Seven’s Sunrise on Tuesday, Olivia refused to call her journey a ‘battle’ and insisted she would ‘win over it again’.

The Grease star interrupted host Samantha Armytage during the chat to express her dislike of the terminology surrounding cancer and its treatment.

‘I don’t like to say “battled”, I like to say “win over”. Battle sets up this anger and inflammation that you don’t want. I’m going to win over it again,’ she said.

The four-time Grammy winner was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, undergoing a partial mastectomy and reconstruction. She was diagnosed again with breast cancer in 2013, but chose to keep it private.

Addressing her new memoir, Don’t Stop Believin’, Olivia claimed she decided to write her own story after being the subject of a television biopic.

‘I think it was really prompted by the fact that they were going to do a TV movie about me and I didn’t know what they were going to say,’ she said.
