Jane Fonda reveals that she has cancer

In addition to being an actress, Jane Fonda has long been known as a far-left activist. However, the veteran Hollywood star recently made headlines for a different reason.

In an Instagram post made late last week, Fonda revealed to her fans that she has been battling with cancer. 

“This is a very treatable cancer”

As Variety magazine noted, Fonda explained that her prognosis remains good despite being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

“This is a very treatable cancer,” Fonda wrote in the post. “Eighty percent of people survive, so I feel very lucky. 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,” Fonda continued. “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.”

“We also need to be talking much more not just about cures, but about causes so we can eliminate them,” the actress went on to add.

“For example, people need to know that fossil fuels cause cancer. So do pesticides, many of which are fossil fuel-based, like mine,” she insisted.

“What we do or don’t do right now will determine what kind of future there will be,” Fonda stressed, adding, “I will not allow cancer to keep me from doing all I can.”

Breitbart pointed out that Fonda most recently starred in the Netflix series “Grace & Frankie” and is set to reprise the role of Vivian next year in “Book Club 2: The Next Chapter,” a sequel to 2018’s “Book Club.”

Fonda is known as a left-wing firebrand

Fonda has deep ties with the left wing of the Democratic Party and has been particularly militant when it comes to opposing pro-life legislation.

When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade earlier this year, Fonda responded by calling for female reproductive organs to be reclassified as weapons.

“If a corporation can be defined as a person, why not redefine vaginas as AK47s,” she tweeted. “That way they’d be free of governmental restrictions by those who care about ‘the sanctity of life’.”
