Olivia Newton-John postpones tour after breast cancer diagnosis

Olivia Newton-John has postponed her North American tour to undergo treatment for breast cancer.

The Grease star was set to hit the road in June (17), but she has revealed she has been diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time.

In a message on Facebook, a spokesperson for the singer reveals the back pain that prompted her to postpone the first half of her concert tour, has turned out to be breast cancer "that has metastasised to the sacrum".

"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," the post continues.

"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 adds.

The 68-year-old will announce the rescheduled dates in the coming weeks.

Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer on the same weekend her father died in 1992, and she underwent treatment and a mastectomy shortly afterwards. She was cancer free up until her recent diagnosis.

The Physical singer has always maintained her first cancer diagnosis was largely positive because it taught her compassion and led to experiences she would have never had, but she did fear a mastectomy.

"I felt complete and utter dread," she told the Daily Mail in 2009. "One night, shortly after it had been confirmed that I needed a mastectomy, I couldn't sleep. I went downstairs, sat in the dark and felt the fear washing over me. I was convinced that the cancer had spread at top speed and was in every part of my body.

"Deep down, there was always a tiny nugget of hope inside me that said, 'You'll be OK. You'll make it,' and that little voice kept me going."
