Let’s Get Physical, Physical!

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”. 🙂

Here’s the final segment, based on the interview.

 

Marianne

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!
