It's been quite a month for celebrity interviews. Not sure why they're all coming out of the woodwork in October, but I won't complain. Yesterday I interviewed Olivia Newton John about her quest to educate women on breast cancer and the importance of self examination.
Olivia herself found a lump when examining her own breast and pursued her case, even after her mammogram came back negative. So she's advocating for women to take charge of their health with a new product called Liv-Aid. (Pronounced Live - as in her nickname and also, of course, the obvious.) Any woman who goes into Curves fitness centers can get a free Liv-Aid: a heart shaped medical device used to help with self breast exams.
Olivia was telling me about her recent hike along the Great Wall of China - a 142 mile journey - done to raise awareness and money for the cause. She's quite a woman! Calls herself a breast cancer "thriver" not survivor - and she's been cancer free for years.
Anyway, you'll be proud to know I stayed on topic and didn't break down and beg her to break out in "Hopelessly Devoted to You". :)
PS She looked great, by the way! And was very warm and easy to talk to, even though she was exhausted from back-to-back interviews. Very passionate about her cause, too!
