Many people have fought the battle with cancer without knowing if they were going to end victorious; it is a big myth that cancer is an invincible disease and that once it knocks on your door, there is no turning back for you. However, we can find take motivation from many famous characters who have emerged successfully from this impasse and have managed to set a precedent in the world, giving hope to people who may be currently suffering from this disease. We’re going to introduce you to three stories of famous women who were able to create a life after cancer’s impact on their lives:
The famous Australian singer and actress, who had an incredible effect on the American market with her great success “Physical,” was about to release what would be her next single when she got diagnosed with breast cancer. This incident took her to leave altogether her scheduled touring and meant a new phase for her life where she devoted himself to treating the disease. Olivia was always very cheerful and positive, even though she had a very delicate tumour for her health, this did not stop her, and she dedicated herself to fight. Today, Olivia’s teaching is about how to maintain a positive attitude in the face of problems and diseases. Now she is an activist dedicated to studying how to prevent cancer, helped to found a crucial medical centre focused on the cure of this disease, called “Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Center.”
The presenter of the program called “ABC’s Good morning America,” had to suffer two intense battles that left her on the verge of death. In 2007, she got diagnosed with breast cancer. After a year, she was able to overcome it. In 2012, again, her life was put into on the edge of death for the second time. The key to overcoming this in a second time was his healthy habits since long before, not smoking, eating healthy, and daily exercise. Today despite continuing in intensive care, cancer has left his life.
Francine Joy, better known as Fran Drescher, is an actress, comedian, screenwriter, producer, director, and activist from the United States.
