Celebrities Diagnosed With Cancer Winning The Battle

Everyone knows someone who is battling cancer. These celebrities are an example of how it is possible to win the battle against cancer, and those waging the same battle can be inspired by them.

Olivia Newton-John was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. Consequently she opted for a mastectomy, chemotherapy, and also consumed healthier foods. After years of having the disease under control, unfortunately cancer returned to the beloved singer and actress in 2013, then again in 2017. More recently, Newton-John has used conventional medical treatments as well as natural therapies including medical cannabis oil produced by her husband John Easterling, the owner of Amazon Herb Company. While on the Dr. Oz show in 2018, she informed viewers that scientists in Israel have been curing cancer with cannabis and that cannabis oil has been very beneficial for relieving her pain. As a testament to the success she has been having with cannibas, Olivia said "I'm living proof that it works."

In 2015 just before her 45th birthday, Shannen Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since her diagnosis, the actress probably best known for playing the character Brenda Walsh in Beverly Hills, 90210, has talked candidly both about her treatments and about how having the support of family and friends is helping with her struggle. With a solid support team, the burden on the cancer patient can be greatly reduced. From words of encouragement to helping with important tasks such as making doctor's appointments, handling food shopping, etc, these acts can greatly lessen the emotional toll that affects every cancer patient. As Shannen Doherty said, she needs "the people that are honest and there and love me for me, and not anything else." Knowing that someone cares about your struggle could be considered a form of cancer therapy alone.

She further commented: "I'm continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life. I'm thankful to family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me."

Much of that comedy relief came from Louis-Dreyfus' two sons Henry and Charles. The two even produced a hilarious dance video to the Michael Jakson song "Beat It" as an homage to her final day of chemotherapy treatments in January 2018.

It's a lot better to be optimistic because you stand a much better chance of helping cure yourself." In late August 2019, Trebek announced that he had finished with chemotherapy and is again taping new episodes of Jeopardy.
