Jane Fonda, 84, announced Friday that she has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and has begun chemotherapy in order to treat it.

Her news was shared through an Instagram post, in which she explained that, despite the diagnosis, she is optimistic about the future.

There is 80 percent of people who survive this kind of cancer, so I feel very lucky to be alive,” she wrote in her letter.

According to her, she has been managing chemotherapy well so far and intends to continue with her responsibilities as usual.

I will be undergoing chemotherapy for 6 months, and while I am handling the treatments quite well, I will not let this interfere with my climate activism at all,” Fonda said.

Additionally, she used the announcement as an opportunity to advocate for more equal and accessible healthcare in the U.S. through the announcement.

It is painful for me to realize that I am privileged in this regard,” Fonda told the paper.

The majority of families in America have gone through some form of cancer at some point or another, and far too many of them do not have access to the quality health care I am receiving, and this is not right at all.

This isn’t Fonda’s first battle with cancer – she previously had breast cancer in the past, but she shared in 2010 that she had been cancer-free for a long time.

Fonda, who is known as an activist in the climate movement, advocated for a preventative approach to cancer, writing that the U.S. should work to eliminate chemicals and pollution that are responsible for the spread of cancer.

“We also need to be talking more about the causes of the disease so we can eliminate them, not just about cures,” she added. “For example, people need to know that fossil fuels cause cancer, and so do pesticides, many of which are made from fossil fuels, like the ones I use.”

In accordance with the American Cancer Society, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of cancer that affects the lymphatic system in the body, which helps the body fight germs and bacteria.

There are several types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but in general, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma occurs when white blood cells grow abnormally and can develop into tumors as a result.

During her new battle, Fonda said that she is grateful for the people around her and for the growing community around her.

“Cancer is a teacher, and I’m paying attention to the lessons it teaches me,” she wrote in a letter to a friend.

Among the things that the project has already taught me is the importance of community. It has shown me the need to grow and deepen one’s sense of community so that we are not alone.”

In an essay published in the New York Times, Fonda indicated that she would not let her diagnosis take away from her activism, writing: “We’re living through one of the most consequential periods in human history.”.

In her note, she wrote, “The midterm elections are just around the corner, and they are beyond consequential, so you can count on me to be right there with you as we grow our army of climate champions.”.
