Australian actor Olivia Newton-John has been diagnosed with cancer again.

In a new interview with Australia's Sunday Night programme, Newton-John revealed doctors discovered a tumour at the base of her spine previous year. But she stressed that "I believe I will win over it".

She revealed in the interview for the first time that along with her initial 1992 breast cancer diagnosis, doctors found cancer in her shoulder after she was involved in a auto accident in 2013.

Newton-John called on Australia to adopt the laws of the U.S. state where she lives, California, and allow the medicinal use of marijuana.

Facing cancer for a third time, the singer said she doesn't allow herself to get scared, not too much anyway.

"There are moments. I'm human".

"And, you know, I was anxious about everything".

The interview unveiled that Newton-John is eating healthily and undergoing radiation treatment to treat her cancer and taking cannabis oil for pain relief.

It's hard to believe, but in a few weeks Olivia Newton-John turns 70. This time, the cancer had spread to her sacrum, a bone at the base of the spine, a discovery which was made by doctors treating her for what they thought was sciatica, a common back complaint. "I'm very lucky that I live in a state where it's legal and that I have a husband that is a plant-medicine man", she told the show.

In a bid to fight the illness, the 69-year-old has completely cut down on sugar, and has turned to herbal remedies to help her.

"Cancer is something I will need to stay on top of for the rest of my long life", she writes in the book, according to the Herald Sun. "I see it as part of my mission maybe". "I just wish her the very best". "I live in this attractive place", Olivia is a fighter and remains incredibly positive about her fate. "I'm treating [the cancer] naturally and doing really well".

"I live in a lovely place, have a wonderful husband, all these animals I adore, I have an incredible career - I have nothing really to complain about".
