“This is a very treatable cancer. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky.”
Fonda also called herself “lucky” to “have health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatment,” acknowledging that she is “privileged as a celebrity.
“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,” she continued.
The “Georgia Rule” star shared she has been doing chemo for six months. She also revealed she is “handling the treatments quite well,” noting that she will not let the disease interfere with her climate-change activism.

“The midterms are looming, and they are beyond consequential so you can count on me to be right there together with you as we grow our army of climate champions,” she added.
Fonda also called cancer “a teacher” and said she is “paying attention to the lessons it holds for me.”
“One thing it’s shown me already is the importance of community,” she wrote.
Fonda had a cancerous growth removed from her lip in early 2018. The actress wore a bandage while promoting Season 4 of Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie.”
The “Monster-in-Law” star also had a cancer scare in 2010. That year she had a small tumor removed from her b****t during a routine checkup.
