Jane Fonda’s recent announcement that shocked the world

In the September of last year, Jane Fonda announced that she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. She then said it is a very treatable type of cancer and eighty percent of people survive it. She wrote,

“It is a very treatable cancer. Eighty percent of people survive it, so I feel very lucky. I have … access to the best doctors and treatments–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 healthcare I am receiving, and this is not right.”

Although this isn’t the first for her to deal with cancer. In 2010, Fonda was diagnosed with breast cancer, but after the removal was the tumor she was declared cancer free.

Fonda didn’t expect to live past 30

She confessed being young is tough.

“It is so hard to be young. Don’t let anybody fool you,”

She used to suffer from very bad bulimia and did not expect to live past the age of 30. Therefore, the normal thoughts that occupy the mind of a young bright woman, did not bother her,

“It’s very hard to be young, don’t let anyone fool you,” she said. “You think, what should I do, who should I meet, who should I become, what should I be interested in?

She had a much more difficult topic to deal with. Fonda said,

“Most of the difficulties I have gone through in my life happened to me at a young age. I suffered from very, very bad bulimia. And although I dealt with it discreetly, I was very, very unhappy. I even thought I wouldn’t live past 30. I’m 85”

Jane Fonda is now better than ever and is thriving. She is trying to make up for the time she lost when she was younger by enjoying her 80s to the fullest
