“Dear friends, I have something personal that I want to share. I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and started chemotherapy.”
Jane Fonda announced on Instagram that she has cancer with these words. The 84-year-old Academy Award-winning actress wrote a lengthy blog post about her illness on Friday.
In this, he said he feels very lucky because “this is a very treatable cancer. 80 percent of people live.” But that’s not the only reason why he considers himself lucky, as evidenced by the sequel, which is also fitting for American social criticism.
But also because he “has health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatments,” recognizing he is “special” as a character. According to him, nearly every family in America has had to deal with cancer at some point, and “a lot of people don’t get the quality health care I get, which isn’t true.”
The publication also reveals that he has been undergoing chemotherapy for six months, and that he is not allowing the disease to interfere with his activism against climate change. “The midterm elections are coming up, and because they are so important, you can count on me to be there with you as we grow our army of climate champions,” he wrote.
