Olivia Newton-John: Hopefully Devoted To Breast Cancer Awareness

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One of Olivia Newton- John’s greatest hits is “Hopelessly Devoted to You” – but, these days, her devotion lies with helping women become more aware of their breasts.

The Grease star, who survived a 1992 breast cancer diagnosis, is backing a new device called the “Liv-Aid” which helps women feel lumps in their breasts more distinctly when they’re doing monthly breast checks.

Newton-John describes the pad as a “magnifying glass” for discrepancies in breast tissue and thinks it can be a great aid for early detection of cancer.

She points out that some women are uncomfortable touching their own breasts, so the Liv-Aid can help with that taboo feeling by acting as a barrier between the breasts and the hands.

The singer is also putting her famous voice to work for cancer charity, starting with a show Thursday (Apr. 21) at the Stage 1 at Candlewalk stadium in Corona, California.
