Olivia has since undergone radiation therapy to treat her latest tumour, while also relying on natural remedies, including medical marijuana grown by her husband John Easterling, to ease her pain.

Speaking about keeping the diagnoses under wraps, she said: 'I thought, "It's my life" and I just made a decision to keep it to myself'. "If I allow myself to go there, I could easily create that, you know, big fear". A lot of people see it as a fight, and that's their prerogative, but I see it as part of my mission. After a minor vehicle accident in 2013 led to the discovery that the cancer had returned, she chose to not speak publicly about it. "There are other people out there doing much, much worse than me". Tinctures. It's hard to say. they help with pain.
