Jane Fonda, 84, revealed that she has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma through an Instagram post on Friday.
“So, my dear friends, I have something personal I want to share. I’ve been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and have started chemo treatments,” she wrote.
She mentioned that she has been receiving chemotherapy for six months and that she is "taking the treatments fairly well."
She has no intention of allowing cancer to impede her efforts to change the climate or slow her down.
Fonda continued by describing herself as "lucky" to "have access to the greatest doctors and treatment" and "health insurance."
She maintained a positive attitude by stating that she is choosing to view cancer as a "teacher" and is "paying attention to the teachings it has for me."
“This is a very treatable cancer. 80 percent of people survive, so I feel very lucky,” she expressed via the post.
