Olivia Newton-John’s memoir revealed heartbreaking details about her cancer diagnosis

In her autobiography, Olivia Newton-John revealed the devastating details of her first cancer diagnosis and why she kept it a secret from her daughter Chloe Lattanzi.

The beloved Australian icon, who died on Monday aged 73, wrote a memoir in 2017 recounting her battle with cancer, which began in 1992.

In it, she said she found a lump during a self-examination of her breasts and urged her doctor to do several tests, all of which came back negative — down to the last one.

On July 3, 1992, Olivia’s then-husband, Matt Lattanzi, now 63, was contacted by her doctor when the couple was changing flights in Seattle.

dr Phillips said he wanted to see Olivia in person, alluding to the bad news, but Matt kept the possible diagnosis from her as it was already a day of heartache.

Olivia’s father Brinley was very ill with liver cancer when he died on July 3rd.

She had only visited him in his sickbed days before, but had to leave for Los Angeles to attend rehearsals for her world tour.

“I told him I’d be back soon, but on the plane home, I cried and cried all night,” Olivia wrote in her book. “In my heart I knew I would never see my father again — and I was right.”

She went on to reveal the moment her daughter Chloe Lattanzi, 36, found out her mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of six in her memoir Don’t Stop B Believe.

The young girl had “lost her best friend, Colette, to cancer,” so Olivia decided to keep the diagnosis a secret from her at first, despite disclosing it publicly.

Unfortunately, Chloe heard the devastating news from her classmates on her first day of school in Australia.

Olivia wrote: “When I picked Chloe up after her very first date she was crying.

“Mom mom! A friend of mine said you have cancer. Is it true?’ I held her, told her it was true, but I’m better now and the cancer is gone.’

The Grease star went on to say her little girl was devastated by the omission, telling her mum, “I would have taken care of you.”

She believed this was the start of the “trust issues” Chloe struggled with later in life.

Olivia died peacefully at her home in Southern California on Monday morning, surrounded by family and friends.

It came after a brave and extraordinarily public decades-long battle with cancer, during which she was last diagnosed three times in 1992, 2013 and 2017.
