Oscar-winning actor Jane Fonda announced Friday that she’s been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma — but vowed that chemotherapy will not slow her political activism.
The 84-year-old Fonda said she’s confident of overcoming this health crisis.
“So, my dear friends, I have something personal I want to share. I’ve been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and have started chemo treatments,” she posted to Instagram.
“This is a very treatable cancer. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky.”
Fonda, who won Best Actress awards for her “Klute” and “Coming Home,” told supporters that this diagnoses will not slow her down.
“I will not let any of this interfere with my climate activism,” she said.
