Jane Fonda has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and has begun chemotherapy treatment, the actress said in post shared on her verified social media account.

“This is a very treatable cancer. 80 percent of people survive, so I feel very lucky,” she wrote.

Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a cancer of the immune system. Fonda said she will be doing chemotherapy for 6 months and that she is “handling the treatments quite well.”

“Cancer is a teacher and I’m paying attention to the lessons it holds for me,” Fonda added of her diagnosis. “The cancer, along with my age—almost 85—definitely teaches the importance of adapting to new realities.”
