Jane Fonda announces she's been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Jane Fonda has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and has begun chemotherapy treatment, the legendary actress and activist said in post shared on her verified social media account.
"This is a very treatable cancer. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky," she wrote. Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a cancer of the immune system. She will be doing chemotherapy for 6 months.
She is handling treatments well & won't let any of this interfere with her climate activism. She's active in raising awareness of climate crisis after getting inspired by activist Greta Thunberg.
In 2019, Fonda launched "Fire Drill Fridays," a civil disobedience effort to raise awareness of environmental challenges.
"Cancer is a teacher & I'm paying attention to the lessons it holds for me. One thing it's shown me already is importance of community & cancer, along with my age teaches adapting to new realities."
Her Netflix TV series "Grace and Frankie" wrapped up its final season in April. Fonda has additional screen projects in the works. She didn't address her ongoing commitments but activism will continue
