Grease co-star Didi Conn said Monday that Olivia Newton-John is doing “beautifully well” even as she fights cancer for a third time.

“The best news I heard is that Olivia Newton John is doing beautifully well. Her spirit shines. I just love her,” Conn told This Morning, reports The Daily Mail. “Her husband is this miracle maker of growing different herbs and cannabis is really working for her for pain.”

Conn, who played Frenchie in the 1978 musical, told This Morning that most of the Grease cast is still in contact.

“Oh yeah. In the movie we said, we’ll always be together and we made friends that have lasted forty years. It’s crazy,” Conn explained, even joking that they stayed in character between takes on the film set.
