She also wrote, "Surprisingly, I've only cried twice. I guess I just didn't feel like it was time to cry."

Besides, Munn recommended that everyone would determine their level of breast cancer risk assessment. That number was the one result leading me to an early MRI and an ultrasound followed by a biopsy," she concluded. "My biopsy results showed that my cancer was also luminal B, which was found in both of my breasts." Luminal B is an aggressive, fast-growing cancer", Munn said.

In the post, Olivia separately thanked her friends and family, specifically her life and business partner John Mulaney.
