Olivia Newton John

Olivia Newton-John is opening up about what she learned from her battle with breast cancer.

As you may know, the Grease star was diagnosed with cancer in 1992 at the age of 44 (the same weekend her father passed away), and was later treated with chemotherapy and a mastectomy.

Since, the singer has dedicated her life to cancer charities and outreach.

Speaking with Radio Times magazine, Miz Newton-John revealed that struggling with her health gave her a greater sense of "compassion" for others:

"I am grateful for the experience because without it I would not have done many of the things I have done in my life. It's taught me compassion for those going through difficult times."

That's amazing!

We definitely could use some more of that in the world right now!
