On Instagram, Jane Fonda announces her cancer diagnosis.

Jane announced her diagnosis on Instagram with a lengthy message and a photo. “So, my dear friends, I have something personal I want to convey,” she wrote. I was diagnosed with non-lymphoma Hodgkin’s and have begun chemotherapy. This malignancy is highly curable. “As 80% of individuals survive, I consider myself quite fortunate.”

The Monster-in-Law actress went on to say that she is fortunate to have health insurance and access to the best doctors, adding, “Almost every family in America has dealt with cancer at some point in their lives, and far too many do not have access to the quality health care I am receiving, and this is not right.”

“We also need to talk a lot more about causes, not just remedies,” Jane continued, “so we can eradicate them.” People, for example, need to be aware that fossil fuels cause cancer. So do pesticides, many of which are derived from fossil fuels, such as mine.” She also mentioned that she has been having treatment for six months and is doing extremely well.

The actress previously battled breast cancer.

Jane has been dealing with health problems for quite some time. She was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago. She had a lumpectomy in November 2010 and beat the illness.

In an interview in April 2019, the former fashion model stated that she had a malignant growth removed from her lower lip as well as pre-melanoma growths removed from her skin. She was also diagnosed with osteoporosis, a disorder that causes bone fragility.


‘I will not let cancer prevent me from doing everything I can,’ she says. Jane claims

Despite having battled cancer many times, the two-time Oscar winner remains upbeat. “Cancer is a teacher, and I’m paying attention to the lessons it has for me,” she continued in her message. One thing it has already taught me is the value of community. The importance of expanding and enhancing one’s community so that we are not alone.”


“We’re living in the most consequential time in human history because what we do or don’t do right now will determine what kind of future there will be,” she added. “I will not let cancer stop me from doing everything I can, using every tool in my toolbox, which very much includes continuing to build this Fire Drill Fridays community and finding new ways to use our collective strength to make a change.”

“The midterms are coming, and they are beyond significant,” the actress, who was recently featured in the Netflix comedy Grace and Frankie, added, “so you can rely on me to be right there beside you as we increase our army of climate champions.”

Jane, we wish you a fast recovery! Stay tuned for further information and updates.
