“I feel very lucky…”
Jane Fonda, at the age of 84, announced today, Friday, September 2, that she has cancer.
“Well, my dear friends, I have something personal that I want to share. I have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and have started chemotherapy,” the legendary actress wrote on Instagram.
“It is a curable cancer. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky,” she said.
Fonda also called herself “lucky” to “have health insurance and access to the best doctors,” acknowledging that she has more privileges as a celebrity.
“Nearly every family in America has had to deal with cancer at one point or another, and far too many don’t have access to the quality health care I receive, which is just not right,” she continued.
The “Georgia Rule” star also shared that she’s been undergoing chemotherapy for six months and is “managing the treatments pretty well,” noting that she won’t let the disease affect her actions to tackle climate change.
