In a recent interview, the legendary Jane Fonda revealed that she believes she doesn’t have much time left to live.
Fonda, at 84, has spent practically her entire life in the spotlight and hopes to utilize her remaining time on Earth to emphasize the importance of celebrities using their voices to advocate for important causes.
During the interview, the actress stated that she is “not afraid of death,” but that she will die “sooner rather than later.”
Fonda, who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma earlier this year in September, talked openly with Entertainment Tonight, saying, “I’m not going to be around for much longer.”
“When you get to be my age, you better be aware of the amount of time that is behind you, rather than in front of you,” she continued. “That’s just common sense.”
Fonda said she would be undergoing chemotherapy after announcing her cancer diagnosis.
“So, my dear friends,” she posted on Instagram at the time, “I have something personal I want to share.” “I was diagnosed with non-lymphoma Hodgkin’s and have begun chemotherapy.”
“This is an extremely treatable malignancy. Because only 80% of individuals survive, I consider myself extremely fortunate.”
“I’m also fortunate because I have health insurance and have access to the greatest doctors and therapies. I realize, painfully, that I am privileged in this. Almost every family in America has dealt with cancer at some point, and far too many do not have access to the great health care I enjoy, which is unacceptable.”
“I’m ready,” she said to ET! “I’ve had a wonderful life.
“I don’t want to go, but I’m aware that it will be sooner rather than later.”
Fonda, who is now in her twilight years, told ET! that she wants people to understand how vital it is for those with a following to utilize their voices to support good causes.
“We also need to be talking much more not just about remedies but about causes so we can remove them,” the 84-year-old stated. ” People, for example, need to be aware that fossil fuels cause cancer. So do pesticides, many of which are derived from fossil fuels, such as mine.”
“Believe me, none of this will interfere with my climate efforts,” Fonda concluded.
“Cancer is a teacher, and I’m paying attention to what it has to teach me. One thing it has already taught me is the value of community. The process of expanding and deepening one’s community so that we are not alone. And the disease, combined with my age – nearly 85 – shows the significance of adapting to new circumstances.”
Jane Fonda, the daughter of famed actor Henry Fonda, has spent the most of her life in the spotlight. The actress has become an icon and role model to millions after receiving countless honors and recognition.
Fonda had previously battled cancer. She had a lumpectomy in 2010 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Then, in April 2019, she revealed that a malignant tumor on her lower lip had been removed the previous year.
We’re sending Jane Fonda all of our love and prayers. We are hopeful that she will be able to overcome this challenge.
