Olivia lends her name to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Center, which is located in Heidelberg, Melbourne.

“She took her cancer journey and used it to save lives and change lives, and that’s just a very impressive thing,” Andrews added.

“The research that is done there (at the cancer and wellness center), the treatment, the care, the love and support that is central there, is a lasting legacy for the person she was.”
