Picture - Olivia Newton-John Reveals How She’s ‘Winning’ Her Battle With Breast Cancer: I’m ‘Stronger’ Now

Olivia Newton-John, 73, spoke about her battle with breast cancer in a new interview with Hoda Kotb,57, where both women spoke about their respective journeys with the disease on Wednesday October 20 on Today. Hoda was incredibly moved when the “Physical” singer took a second out of the interview to ask how she was doing, after the Today host revealed her own diagnosis in 2007.

Hoda told Olivia that she was taken aback when she was told that she had breast cancer. “I remember realizing in that moment, I’m an optimist too. I didn’t want to know about any of the testing. I didn’t want to get in the weeds. Being naive sometimes is a blessing,” she said.

The Today host seemed moved when the singer checked on how she’s doing. “I’m really sorry you went through that. I didn’t know that about you. Are you well now? Are you feeling good?” Olivia asked, and Hoda mentioned how much it meant that she asked. “We’re sisters. Anyone who’s gone on this journey with cancer. It’s unknown destinations and surprises and turns,” the Grease actress said.
