Olivia Newton-John has opened up about battling cancer for the third time. "I shouldn't say fight, in this journey", she said.

"I've been great", she said at the time.

"There are moments. I'm human".

"I believe I will win over it and that's my goal".

Outside of her own battles with cancer, the disease has struck another member of her family: Her sister died six weeks after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer in 2013.

When asked how she stops herself from feeling scared, Newton-John said: "By having a focus on other things and not thinking about yourself all the time".

But in the emotive interview Newton-John added that she does experience "moments" of despair.

Opening up about the diagnosis is something that the singer says that still leaves her uneasy.

Huge conglomerates like Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu and JD.com are to China what Facebook and Google are to the United States. Alibaba started as a business-to-business marketplace, but had enormous growth when it started selling to consumers.

"A lot of cannabis, my husband grows for me", she said. If anyone can beat this, she can! "I see it as part of my mission maybe".

Speaking to Sunday Night, the Hollywood star revealed how she had first thought the lump had been caused by the tension of her seatbelt, but scans showed it to be the return of a cancer she had beaten twenty years earlier.

She told CNN: "I love to sing, it's all I know how to do".

The 69-year-old actress revealed she has cancer in her lower spine and has been treating the disease with "modern" medicines and natural remedies. "I have nothing to really complain about".

The singer said that for the pain, she is taking cannabis oil, made from marijuana her husband grows in California.

'[My husband] makes me tinctures and they really help with the pain, they help with sleep, so I am very lucky I live in a state where [cannabis] is legal and also that I have a husband that's a plant medicine man.

"I feel so fortunate to have had the success I've had, and to do the wonderful things I do", she continued.
