Jane Fonda, a renowned actress and activist, revealed in a message on her verified social media account that she has been diagnosed with non-lymphoma Hodgkin’s and has started chemotherapy treatment.
“This malignancy is extremely curable. I consider myself very lucky because 80% of people survive “She composed.
An immune system cancer is non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Fonda asserted that she will have chemotherapy for six months and said she is “handling the treatments fairly well.” And trust me, I won’t let any of this get in the way of my climate action, she added.
Greta Thunberg, a young environmental activist, inspired Fonda to take action against the climate issue.
In an effort to draw attention to environmental problems, Fonda initiated “Fire Drill Fridays” in 2019.
“Cancer is a teacher, and I’m paying attention to the lessons it presents for me,” stated Fonda in reference to her diagnosis. I’ve already learned the value of community and the importance of growing one’s group so that we are not isolated. Additionally, my advancing age and the disease teach me the importance of adjusting to new circumstances.
In April, Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie,” starring Fonda, finished up its last season. Fonda is engaged in other film-related ventures, according to her IMDB profile.
Despite skirting the topic of her ongoing professional commitments, Fonda vowed to continue her political activism.
The most important period in human history is currently, she wrote, “because what we do or don’t do now will determine what kind of future there will be. I will not allow cancer to stop me from doing everything I can, using every tool at my disposal, and that very much includes continuing to build this Fire Drill Fridays community and finding new ways to use our collective strength to make change.” “You can depend on me to be right there with you as we build our army of climate warriors because the midterms are right around the corner and they are beyond crucial.”
