Cancer returns for songbird Newton-John
OLIVIA Newton-John has announced her breast cancer has returned causing her to postpone her upcoming tour.
The 68-year-old singer was scheduled to perform in June in USA and Canada.
Her official statement on the decision said, "The back pain that initially caused her to postpone the first half of her concert tour, has turned out to be breast cancer that has metastasized to the sacrum".
She is expected to pursue relief through natural wellness therapies and a short course of photon radiation therapy.

While Olivia and her support team are confident she will be able to return to touring in the latter part of the year, she has a hard road ahead after first being diagnosed with breast cancer back in the 1992.
"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," Olivia Newton-John said in her statement.
It appears that Olivia has now gone indoors, shunning the public and media attention, to focus on her personal battle.
Our thoughts are with her at this difficult time.
