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 extremely lucky because 80% of people survive “She composed.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is an immune system malignancy. Asserting that she is “taking the treatments fairly well,” Fonda claimed she will undergo chemotherapy for six months. She said, “And, trust me, I will not let any of this interfere with my climate advocacy.”
Fonda was motivated to take action against the climate issue by Greta Thunberg, a teenage environmental campaigner.
Fonda started “Fire Drill Fridays” in 2019 as a civil disobedience campaign to bring attention to environmental issues.
Regarding her diagnosis, Fonda said, “Cancer is a teacher, and I’m paying attention to the lessons it offers for me. “It has already taught me the value of community, for example. fostering a deeper sense of community to ensure that we are not alone. The necessity of adjusting to new circumstances is something that both the disease and my advanced age—I’m almost 85—clearly teach.”
The last season of “Grace and Frankie” on Netflix, starring Fonda, was completed in April. According to her IMDB page, Fonda is working on more cinematic projects.
Despite avoiding the subject of her continued work obligations, Fonda vowed to keep up her campaigning.
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.”
