Speaking about being in remission and being told by her oncologist that her chemotherapy could end, she added, “I’m especially happy because, whereas my first four chemo treatments were relatively easy, with only a few days of fatigue, my last chemo session was difficult and lasted two weeks, making it difficult to accomplish much.”

Non-lymphoma Hodgkin’s is rare cancer that arises in the lymphatic system – the enormous network of lymphatic arteries and glands.

The Academy Award-winning actress made her cinematic debut in 1960, gaining fame for films such as Barbarella, Nine to Five, and On Golden Pond.

Her most recent appearance was in Grace and Frankie, a Netflix comedy series.

Fonda is also widely recognized for her political activism. In the 1960s, she opposed the Vietnam War vehemently.

She stated that the effects of her most recent chemotherapy treatment “wore off right before I went to Washington, D.C. for the first live, in-person Fire Drill Fridays rally,” where she invites firemen in the United States to “demand a cleaner, greener, healthier world.

“Thank God for it because it was a busy week,” she remarked as she described her other climate and environmental advocacy efforts.
