After Olivia Newton-John was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, she reportedly sold most of her real estate to invest in her foundation and wellness center. Sadly, the news broke yesterday that the actress and singer died at the age of 73. She battled cancer for many years of her life.

In 2012, she established the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre at Melbourne’s Austin Hospital. Prior to that, she co-founded the Gaia Retreat & Spa. She was very invested in finding new ways to treat cancer and make herself and other patients feel more comfortable during the process. She was also a huge advocate of medical marijuana.

In 2020 she explained, “The idea is to fund research into kinder ways to treat cancer, to prevent cancer, and to live well with cancer. So, all those things, I believe, we will eventually see a world beyond it where it’s just treated as any other illness that you can kind of control and live well with and, of course, hopefully, cure it. Living well is something that I do, and I’m hoping that I can help others do that.”

In 2019, she listed her California horse ranch for $5.4 million as well as her 189-acre Australian farm. The farm features property with eight lots, a main house, a guest suite, and even a rainforest with large bird populations. In 2021, she also transferred full ownership of her home in Santa Barbara to her husband John Easterling. The proceeds reportedly went to her foundation to help others.
