Jane Fonda announces she has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

  1. “This is a very treatable cancer,” she wrote, adding that “I’m also lucky because I have health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatments. I realize, and it’s painful, that I am privileged in this. 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.”

  2. If a quote summed up Jane Fonda, it would be this. She's in her mid-80's, facing cancer, and the bulk of her statement is centered around concern for others.

  3. My grandma was diagnosed with this cancer at 90 and dead shortly after at 91. How she made her loved ones feel better about her diagnosis was, hey it's okay I've lived, loved and had imense joy in my life, think of me and smile.

  4. it's so.....jane fonda of her to bring attention to her own privilege and continue her activism in this statement. she's so real and wonderful and i love her so much and i wish all the best for her.

  5. The woman was the first exercise influencer (along with Richard Simmons lol)! There was no one else around back then on a screen into exercise, it was before internet.

  6. I love the fact that they are so candid about aging and what it brings, but also they show how much fun they can have and how their lives are still so complex. It's like Golden Girls of the 2020s.

  7. That show really made me appreciate her and made me aspire to be a svelte margarita sipping glamazon in my 80s. [Like her character].

  8. Jane Fonda is probably like, my favorite famous person ever. When I saw this notification on my phone it was like actually kind of upsetting because I like her so much, but Jane Fonda’s own statement about her cancer actually reassured me and made me feel better. She’s gotta be one of the toughest 85 year olds out there, I really wish her luck.

  9. Also! If you guys like Grace and Frankie, I’d strongly encourage you to get into her older stuff. Klute is probably the best movie she ever made, The China Syndrome and They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? are absolute classics, The Morning After is a highly underrated thriller IMO, and The Electric Horseman is worth watching just because she and Robert Redford have crazy chemistry. She’s really an amazing actress who’s had a fascinating career. I’ve heard her called the Madonna of actresses, because she’s reinvented herself like five times and she’s been amazing at everything she’s tried.

  10. I love this woman. Peter was a good dude as well. Henry Fonda was by all accounts a terrible father but his performance in 12 Angry Men is one of the best I've ever seen. Jane is a very strong and ballsy woman. She takes no shit and i hope she beats this. Check her out in The China Syndrome about a nuclear power plant cover-up. It's brilliant.
