Olivia Newton-John Is Now A Doctor In Australia

Olivia Newton-John has been given the title Doctor for her work in developing cancer research in Australia.

Dr Olivia Newton-John founded the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre with Austin Health in Melbourne in 2009. The centre provides patients with cancer access to leading medical treatment, breakthrough research, and the best in wellness and supportive care.

Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. She was diagnosed the same week her father died from cancer. “I learned very quickly how important it was for me to think positively,” she says at the Wellness Centre website. “When the second friend I called with the news burst into tears, I thought – this is too stressful. I had to find someone else to handle the day to day discussions of my health so I could concentrate on healing.

“I underwent a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and breast reconstruction. I did herbal formulas, meditation and focused on a vision of complete wellness. I am very grateful that after a long journey I am still well and cancer-free”.

The Olivia Newton-John Wellness Centre is now considered one of the top cancer facilities in the world.

“The ONJ Centre provides top medical research and the newest cutting edge treatments, combined with the best in wellness care, where we support patients and their families with life enhancing Wellness programs during their journey. I believe that through our research we will ultimately find cures for all types of cancer,” she says.

“My dream is that one day the ONJ Centre will be only about Wellness, and we will no longer need cancer centres because cancer will be a thing of the past”.
