Olivia Newton-John has shared an update with fans following the return of her breast cancer, which led her to postpone her tour in May.

"I'd like to express my gratitude to all of you who sent such kind and loving messages of support over the past few months. Your prayers and well wishes have truly helped me, and continued to lift my spirits. I'm feeling great, and so look forward to seeing you soon," the singer, who was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, said in a new clip posted to Facebook.

The Grease star then focused on the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre and its new "We Go Together" campaign, which aims to raise money for research, trials and holistic care in an effort to improve the lives of cancer patients. 

"I've had time to reflect on how proud I am of the center and the important contribution it makes to the lives of the communities it serves," Newton-John said.

The organization hopes to raise $1 million through the campaign by encouraging people to share #WeGoTogether messages of "strength and courage" to those with cancer, or in memory of those who have lost their battle, on social media along with their donations.
