Jane Fonda has cancer. She announced it in the Italian night she announces via social to her followers. She was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: “This is a very treatable cancer. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky '- photos

CHEMOTHERAPY HAS BEGUN - “I have been doing chemo for six months and I am facing the treatments quite well - he then reassured Fonda -. I am very lucky - she adds - also because I have health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatments. I realize, and it is painful, that I am privileged in this. Almost every family in America has had to deal with cancer in one way or another and too many people don't have access to the quality of health care I'm receiving, and that's not fair. '

DO NOT RENOUNCE TO FIGHT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT - “We also need to talk a lot more not only about the treatments - wrote the 84-year-old star - but also about the causes, so that they can be eliminated. For example, people need to know that fossil fuels cause cancer. As well as pesticides, many of which are based on fossil fuels ”.
