Olivia Newton-John death on August 8, 2022
It's taken me a few days to realize that Olivia Newton-John's death from cancer has really shaken me. I knew that she was diagnosed with breast cancer in the early 1990's but did not know that she was being treated for cancer again in 2013 (reported to be breast cancer in her shoulder). I'm going on what the media reported so I'm certain I'm missing many details.
My own cancer journey began in 2019 (endometrial adenocarcinoma treated with hysterectomy) and recurrence in late 2021 (treated with radiation therapy). There are days and weeks that go by where I feel good and don't dwell on cancer. This week has been difficult.
How are you feeling after the announcement of Olivia Newton-John's death? Do you feel like I do that every time you turn around someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer?
