Non-Hodgkin lymphoma patient Jane Fonda has declared that her cancer is in relapse, three months after she revealed she had the disease.
Fonda said in a blog entry titled “Best Birthday Present Ever” that her oncologist had informed her she could “discontinue” the chemotherapy she had been receiving for her illness.
The 85-year-old Fonda also said in the blog post, “I am feeling so grateful, so fortunate.”
“I want to thank everyone who prayed and thought of me. “I do not doubt that it contributed to the excellent news.”
Apart from the weariness it induced, chemo had been rather “easy” the first four times, according to Fonda, who has also been a fitness expert.

Fonda also noted that she felt fortunate because doctors view that particular illness as “very treatable.”
Jane Fonda has used her diagnosis to draw attention to the fact that many Americans lack access to affordable healthcare and health insurance, as well as the link between pesticides, fossil fuels, and cancer.
In September, Jane Fonda remarked, “I have access to the best medical professionals and therapies.”
Almost every American family has dealt with cancer at some point, and far too many don’t have access to the kind of high-quality healthcare I receive. This is wrong.
The two-time Academy Award winner has battled cancer at least twice. In 2010, she received a breast cancer diagnosis.
The actor was declared cancer-free by Fonda’s publicist following the removal of the tumour.
For her roles in Klute and Coming Home, Fonda earned the Best Actress Academy Award in 1971 and 1978, respectively.
She is a star of Grace and Frankie, the longest-running comedy series on Netflix.
The performer gained notoriety off-screen for her advocacy against the Vietnam War, the environment, and feminism.
