Jane Fonda, legendary actress and activist in raising awareness of the climate crisis is diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and has begun chemotherapy treatment as she announced it on her verified social media account.

Fonda said she will be doing chemotherapy for six months and that she is “handling the treatments quite well,” adding “and, believe me, I will not let any of this interfere with my climate activism.””This is a very treatable cancer. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky,” she wrote.
