Oh, Good: Jane Won’t Let Cancer Interfere With Climate Activism

September 7, 2022

Former actress and Vietnam-era traitor Jane Fonda gave fans a health update on her blog after she revealed she’d been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

“Since last week, so many people have written to me or posted that they have had this type of cancer and have been cancer-free for many decades,” she said. “Well, I’ll soon be 85, so I won’t have to worry about ‘many decades.’ One will do just fine.”

“Many have asked how I am feeling,” she continued. “Well today, about 3 weeks from my first chemo session, I must tell you that I feel stronger than I have in years. The doctor told me the best antidote to the tiredness that chemotherapy can cause is to move. Walk. And I have been walking. Very early before the record heat kicks in. Also working out.

“This is not my first encounter with cancer. I’ve had breast cancers and had a mastectomy and come through very well and I will do so again.”

She added in her announcement she won’t be letting “any of this interfere” with her climate activism.

“We’re living through 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 and I will not allow cancer to keep me from doing all I can…” she wrote.
