"I'm one of millions in this fight ... I shouldn't say fight -- in this journey," Newton-John said. "A lot of people see it as a fight, and whatever you choose to see it (as) that's you're prerogative. I see it as part of my -- whatever you want to call it -- I see it as part of my mission, maybe."
Newton-John said she’s doing well on her treatment, which includes a healthier diet, cutting out sugar, radiation and cannabis oil for her pain. Her husband, John Easterling, grows a small amount of the plant for her.
“In California, it’s legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes, so he makes me tinctures,” she said. “They help with pain. They help with sleep. “I’m very lucky I live in a state where it's legal and that I have a husband that is a plant medicine man. And my dream is that in Australia, soon it will be available to all the cancer patients and people going through cancer or any kind of disease that causes pain.”
