The Grace & Frankie actress, who won an Oscar for the film, revealed in a statement on Instagram that she has non-lymphoma Hodgkin’s and has started chemotherapy. Jane Fonda, who is currently 84, is certain that she can overcome this.
This malignancy is relatively curable, according to Fonda. “80% of people survive, therefore I consider myself really lucky.”
She said, “I’m also fortunate to have health insurance and access to the greatest medical professionals and therapies. I am aware of my privilege in this, and it hurts. Nearly every American family has experienced cancer at some point, and it is wrong that far too many people do not have access to the high-quality medical treatment I receive.”
She said that she will undergo chemotherapy for six months, and she has been responding well to the treatments.
Fonda is a climate activist who cares about the welfare of the entire globe, and her illness did not discourage her from following her dream. She has no intention of stopping either.
According to Fonda, “Cancer is a teacher, and I’m paying attention to the lessons it has for me.” “It has already taught me the value of community. Fostering a deeper sense of community to ensure that we are not alone. The significance of adjusting to new circumstances is something that both the disease and my age—nearly 85—clearly teach.”
Being a member of a well-known Hollywood family, Jane Fonda rose to fame for both her activism and acting beginning in the late 1960s. She received Oscars for her roles in the films Coming Home (1978) and Klute (1971). Additionally, she has appeared in the Netflix series Grace and Frankie as well as the movies Barbarella and 9 to 5.
We just hope she stays strong and overcomes this illness like the champion she is!
