Veteran Hollywood actor Jane Fonda recently revealed that she has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and that she has begun chemotherapy. In the lymphatic system, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma develops. It's a sort of aberrant white blood cell called a lymphocyte that is produced in excess by the body.

The malignancy is relatively treatable, according to Fonda's Instagram post. She considers herself extremely lucky because 80% of people survive. The actor is fortunate to have health insurance and access to the best medical professionals and therapies. She is aware of her privilege in this, and it hurts.

Fonda also said that almost every family in America has dealt with cancer at some point, and it is wrong that too many people lack access to the kind of high-quality medical treatment she does.

The actor is managing the treatments fairly well, and Fonda declared about her six-month chemo treatment plan that she will not let any of this interfere with her climate activism. According to Fonda, cancer is a teacher, and she's paying attention to the lessons it has for her.

Cancer has already taught her the value of community, for one thing, fostering a deeper sense of community to ensure that cancer patients are not alone. Additionally, her age of almost 85 years old and the disease teach her the value of adjusting to new circumstances.

In December, Fonda will turn 85 years old. The actor, a two-time Oscar winner, has maintained the success of her career in recent years with the recently concluded Grace and Frankie television series and her ongoing involvement in the political and climate change fields. Fonda promised to continue her campaign despite her illness.

She will not let cancer stop her from doing all she can, using every tool in her toolbox, including continuing to build this Fire Drill Fridays community and finding new ways to use their collective strength to effect change. She continued by saying that they're living through the most consequential time in human history because what they do or don't do right now will determine what kind of future there will be.

In her final statement, Fonda said that one can depend on her to be right there with them as they develop their army of climate warriors because the midterms are looming and they are beyond significant.
