‘I hope that 2021 brings us new things and better news, and just keep your spirits up and think positive thoughts.’

Olivia is currently living with stage-four metastatic breast cancer.

In January, the Australian icon gave fans a health update and revealed that her tumours had shrunk in size.

She told The Sunday Telegraph that using medicinal cannabis and natural remedies in addition to conventional medicine had improved her health.

‘My tumours are receding or they’re going away or they’re staying the same, on a Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer — that’s pretty amazing,’ she said.

‘If I hadn’t had the experience I’m having with cannabis I wouldn’t be able to talk about it.’

Olivia, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2017 and twice before in 1992 and 2013, has spent years lobbying the Australian government to approve the use of medicinal cannabis for cancer patients.

In an October interview with Nine’s Today show, Olivia said she was ‘feeling great’ and was enjoying self-isolation at her country estate in America with her husband John Easterling amid the coronavirus pandemic.

‘I feel great and I’m so grateful I’m able to be in the countryside,’ she said.

‘I have my animals and my husband. This has actually been one of the rare times in my whole life where I have been in one place for more than three weeks.’
