Actress Jane Fonda has revealed that she has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma
Jane Fonda, an Oscar winner, disclosed on Friday that she has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. However, she has sworn that her political involvement will not be slowed by chemotherapy.
Fonda, who is 84 years old, stated she is positive that she will get through this health problem.
“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 expressed on Instagram post.
“This is a very treatable cancer. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky.”
American Cancer Society chief scientific officer Dr. William Dahut agreed that Fonda has a possibility of survival, however it would rely on many things.
“It is potentially a curable malignancy, depending significantly upon the sub-type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and the degree of spread at the time of diagnosis,” an oncologist said
The probability and the likelihood of her bright outlook coming true is not out of the question.
The famed actor added, “health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatments.”
She continued, “Almost every family in America has had to deal with cancer at one time or another and far too many don’t have access to the quality health care I am receiving and this is not right,”
