Singer/actress Olivia Newton-John stopped by The Grove to chat with "Extra's" Mario Lopez about being cancer-free for 18 years, and about her new documentary on breast cancer.

"I'm very grateful that I'm here, and I don't take it for granted. I'm very lucky," said the 62-year-old of beating breast cancer.

Olivia is now is reaching out to all women with a new documentary, "1 A Minute," which spotlights the disease and ways to prevent it. "In the whole world, a woman dies of breast cancer every minute, which is quite a shocking statistic."

The singer has also just released a new CD called "Grace and Gratitude Renewed," saying, "It's very peaceful and it's not like anything anyone's heard from me before."

Newton-John wanted to send out well wishes to her friend Michael Douglas, who just finished his treatment for throat cancer. "I think he's amazing, and the fact that he's been so vocal about it -- I think is wonderful and brave."
