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 theyre 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.
