It is a poignant message delivered by the 84-year-old actress. On September 3, Jane Fonda revealed, via a post on Instagram, to have cancer. “My dear friends, I have something personal to share. I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and started chemotherapy treatments. It’s a very treatable cancer. 80% of people survive it, so I feel very lucky,” she began by explaining.
A disease for which treatments are still just as expensive and to which some patients cannot have access. An injustice that the star denounced in the following of his message. “I am also blessed with health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatments. I realize, and it hurts, that I am privileged in this area. cancer at one point or another and far too many of them don’t have access to the quality care that I receive, which is not normal. We also need to talk a lot more, not just about cures, but also causes of cancer in order to eliminate them”, explained Jane Fonda.
However, this environmental activist does not intend to put an end to her climate and political commitments. “We are living in the most important time in human history because what we do or don’t do now will determine what kind of future we have. I won’t let cancer stop me from doing everything what I can […] The midterm elections are approaching, and they will have serious consequences, so you can count on me to be at your side and grow our army of climate champions,” she explained. .
