84-year-old actress Jane Fonda has been diagnosed with cancer.
The movie star shocked her fans with her confession in serious illness. A message about this appeared on the personal page of the actress on the social network – Fonda was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Lymphomas are malignant tumors derived from lymphocytes. The disease can have dozens of different forms, from a slow to extremely aggressive course, but in general, all of them are assessed by modern medicine as treatable. One of the effective methods of struggle is chemotherapy, which Fonda is already undergoing.
“This form of cancer is treatable. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky. I am also lucky that I have health insurance and access to the best doctors and quality treatment. However, it hurts me to know that “I have some privileges. Almost every family in the US has cancer at some point, and so many don't have access to the quality health care that I get, it's not right,” the actress said. She also admitted that she was determined to fight decisively: “I will not let anything interfere with my work. Cancer is like a teacher, and I pay attention to the lessons he teaches me. It is important for people with such a disease not to feel alone, it is important to unite and support each other. friend”.

Then the treatment gave a positive result, so the star is sure that she will be able to cope with the new challenge.
