Olivia Newton-John shares uplifting holiday message amid pandemic: 'We'll get through this'


Despite the tough times during the coronavirus pandemic, Olivia Newton-John is spreading some positivity during the 2020 holiday season.

Over the Christmas weekend, the 72-year-old actress shared an uplifting video on her official social media page.

The “Grease” actress encouraged her fans to keep their “spirits up” amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that caused many to celebrate the holidays alone.

“Hello everyone! I just want to wish you all the happiest and healthiest holiday season. I hope that 2021 brings us new things and better news,” Newton-John said. “Just keep your spirits up and think positive thoughts. We’ll get through this, this too will pass. Much love to you all.”

Last week, Newton-John shared an adorable picture of herself kissing her husband, John Easterling. She added a mistletoe sticker over the image in the photo while teaching everyone about the plant’s health benefits.

“While everyone is preparing for the holidays, did you know that mistletoe isn’t just for getting a kiss from that special someone at Christmas?” she wrote. “Mistletoe has had a long history of medicinal applications for centuries and, modern day scientists are now exploring its use as a treatment for colon cancer!”

While Newton-John shares positive messages with her fans, she also gives updates about her personal life.

In October, the actress, who is currently battling cancer for the third time, revealed that the Olivia Newton-John Foundation is funding therapies and treatments to cure cancer.

Newton-John is a two-time cancer survivor after being diagnosed first with breast cancer in 1992 and again in 2013. In 2017, she was told that the cancer had spread to her bones. But the “Grease” star doesn’t see the diagnosis “as a battle.”

In a recent interview, the 72-year-old shared that she is “feeling really good” and discussed why she decided to launch this new charity.

“I feel really positive and very excited about bringing this foundation and a lot of knowledge to people, and funding research to find out lots of answers -- to find kinder treatments for cancer,” she added.
