If you think of Olivia Newton-John, chances are the first image that comes to mind is the sweet-then-sassy Sandy in the movie Grease. Then there’s her music—the soundtrack for the ‘70s and ‘80s, with hits like I Honestly Love You, Have You Never Been Mellow and Physical. Olivia’s still hard at work in the studio and on the screen, with the recent release of her latest CD Grace and Gratitude Renewed, her cameo appearance on the hit TV show Glee and her starring role in the movie Score: A Hockey Musical. But Olivia is devoted to a new role these days: passionate advocate for women’s health.
As a breast cancer survivor, Olivia is on a crusade to create awareness about early detection. She encourages women to take a more active role in their health and has launched the Liv Aid, a device to help women perform breast self-exams.
Olivia’s commitment to fighting cancer will expand in 2012 with the opening of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia, for which she raised more than $2 million by leading a trek along the Great Wall of China in 2008. Looking back, Olivia says she’s grateful now for her cancer experience—she can now be a positive inspiration to other women battling cancer.
My Generation’s Doris McMillon has the inspiring story of this superstar on a mission to save lives and make a difference for millions of women.

It's hard to believe that Olivia Newton-John is in her sixties.Looking fit and fabulous, the Grammy award winning singer and Grease actress headlined The 2010 Pink Ribbon Night yesterday in Vienna, Austria. The 61-year-old sang for the crowd and was joined on stage by a group of handsome and fit Chippendales dancers.
The gala was held to show solidarity with breast cancer survivors and to convince as many women as possible to see their doctors for potentially life-saving early diagnosis checks. Newton-John is a breast cancer survivor herself, having been diagnosed in 1992,and has since worked tirelessly to raise awareness about the disease. Born in England and raised in Australia, she now lives in Florida with her second husband, John Easterling, and has a grown-up daughter, Chloe. Newton-John became a household name in 1978 after starring in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Grease, which co-starred John Travolta, became the biggest box office hit of the year.
It also made Newton-John a sex symbol when she set male pulses racing by donning a pair of tight black leather trousers and a black leather jacket. The Grease icon also had several chart-topping music hits in the 1970's and '80's including Let Me Be There, I Honestly Love You and Physical. As for her acting, she will next appear in the new film Score: A Hockey Musical, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival recently.
Olivia and Canadian songwriter Marc Jordan play the highbrow parents of a teen hockey star who achieves greatness on the ice. Olivia and Marc will also co-write and perform a song for the indie movie's end credits. The actress recently opened up about how she stays looking so fabulous, saying her vices are white toast and chocolate, 'although we all know a little dark chocolate is good for you.'

From Olivia: "Grace and Gratitude" was written at a time in my life when I needed some personal healing. I have always turned to music, meditation and prayer to guide me. I believe that healing starts with an attitude of gratitude, and even in my darkest hours I tried to remember all that I have to be grateful for."
In these past four years the universe heard me and has restored joy, health and love into my life. I awoke to the love of my life, my husband John Easterling, and my seven year journey to launch the ONJ Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia has finally come to fruition.
I have been very touched by the response to the words and music of "Grace and Gratitude" and have had the privilege of sharing it in concert with many of you since its first release. I am so excited that my new friends at Green Hill and EMI are going to make this music available everywhere.
With "Grace and Gratitude Renewed", I want to bring some of the happy energy I have been blessed with these past few years, to this revisited collection. I have resung several of the songs, and invited a few dear friends to sing with me. My producer, co-writer and dear friend Amy Sky and I were inspired to write a new song, "Help Me To Heal" - I love it and hope you do too!
Yours in love and light,Olivia

About The Album
Olivia Newton-John's Grace and Gratitude is inspired by her belief that music has the power to heal by calming our minds, lifting our spirits, and connecting to our hearts. Named for Olivia's appreciation for the gift of life, Grace and Gratitude contains more than 20 tracks intended for relaxation and healing. As an 18-year breast cancer "thriver," Olivia has learned the importance of physical and emotional health, and especially the power of music. Research has shown that music can lower stress hormones, slow down brain waves, and actually boost the body's own healing process.
Co-written by the album's producer, Amy Sky, the lyrics acknowledge a variety of belief systems, including Tibetan chants, prayers from Judaism and Islam, and a poem from St. Francis of Assisi. Together, Olivia and Amy took the chakras of the body as the basis for each song on the CD. Each chakra is connected to a sacred truth that reflects your pshycological, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
