Olivia Profile: AARP "My Generation"

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.
