On September 2nd, the 84-year-old actress and climate activist took to Instagram to share her recent news. Sad to say, the news is not good: she has been diagnosed with non-lymphoma Hodgkin’s lymphoma. “So, my dear friends,” Jane captioned her Instagram photo. I’d like to tell you something personal. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and have started chemotherapy.

Most people would be heartbroken if they were diagnosed with cancer at any age. Jane Fonda, on the other hand, is upbeat because of the type of cancer she has a good prognosis. As a result, she considers herself “fortunate.” “This is a highly treatable cancer.” “80% of people survive, so I consider myself extremely fortunate,” she wrote.

Not only does she consider herself blessed because her disease is not fatal or aggressive, but she also went on to say that because of her financial situation, she receives the best medical treatment and the most effective therapies. It pains her to admit that the average person does not understand this. I’m also fortunate to have access to the best doctors and therapies, Jane added. I realize, and it stings, that I am privileged in this situation.

This isn’t Fonda’s first brush with cancer. She was diagnosed with breast cancer more than ten years ago, and the cancer was removed during surgery in 2010.

Jane Fonda expressed her sadness at realizing that many people do not have the same opportunities as her. Her wealth allows her to receive the best care available, but others must make do with what the government can provide. Almost every family in America has faced cancer at some point, and far too many do not have access to the high-quality health care that I do, which is unacceptable.

The Monster’s Inc. actress revealed that she will be undergoing chemotherapy for six months. Fortunately, she claims to be dealing with the effects of the radiation well and vows that her advocacy will not suffer as a result. I’ve been doing chemo for 6 months and am doing pretty well, she explained. I will not let any of this get in the way of my climate activism.

Many people have written about their epiphanies when faced with a potentially fatal condition. Cancer, according to Jane Fonda, taught her life lessons that she valued in her later years. “Cancer is a teacher, and I’m paying attention to the lessons it has for me,” he wrote. It has already taught me the value of community. The process of broadening and deepening one’s community in order to feel less alone. And my disease, as well as my age (I’m almost 85), teaches me the importance of adapting to new situations.

When it comes to raising awareness about climate change and finding ways to help, Jane appears to be more motivated than ever. “We are living in the most critical period in human history because what we do or do not do now will define the nature of the future.” I will not let cancer stop me from doing everything I can with every tool in my toolbox, including expanding the Fire Drill Fridays community and finding new ways to use our collective strength to effect change.

“The midterm elections are coming up, and they are critical, so you can count on me to be right there with you as we build our army of climate advocates,” she added.
