Jane Fonda gave fans a health update on her blog after she revealed she'd been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The 84-year-old actress wrote that she has been "moved and uplifted" by all the messages she received following her announcement.
Fonda also emphasized again that non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a treatable cancer. "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." Fonda wrote about how she's been feeling since her first chemotherapy treatment, which she will continue for the next six months.
