The world of cinema, television and everything that has to do with both have a large number of followers around the world who consume and value their content. For this reason, the professionals who are dedicated to them gain, over the years, high levels of popularity internationally. One of the best known faces is that of Jane Fonda, born on December 21, 1937 in New York. She is an American actress with a very relevant career and winner of important awards, such as the Oscar for best actress.
Precisely, the importance of the roles she has played throughout her career, as well as the awards she has received, are what have made us know a lot of information regarding her professional life. However, it is not so much what we know about his personal life. Therefore, from The Look we wanted to gather all the information you need to know what kind of cancer the actress is having to face.
This is the life of Jane Fonda
The actress' full name is Jane Symour and she is the daughter of Frances Seymour Brokaw and the famous actor Henry Fonda. She has an older sister from her father's first marriage, who was looking for the desired male in that second child. After her came Peter, the actor's third son and the youngest of the family.
They decided to move to Connecticut and it was there that Jane spent the first years of her life. Everything began to go awry when, as a consequence of her many marital problems, despair led her mother to commit suicide by cutting her jugular vein, although her father hid it from them for many years.
Jane Fonda's successful career as an actress
Returning to her professional life, where she has had more joys, she took her first steps on the big screen appearing in 'I'll Marry You' and, after that, in 'A Sunday in New York'.
It was these works that began to boost Jane's career as an actress. In 1971 and for her role in 'Klute' she received her first Oscar for best actress. This was repeated years later, in 1978, when she received it for 'Coming Home'.
Likewise, Jane has also worked as a producer of some important films in the world of cinema. Some of them are 'The Comeback' and 'The China Syndrome'. Among her most recent works, we can mention that she has participated in the series 'Grace and Frankie' and 'Yearly Departed'.
Jane Fonda faces a cancer that many recover from
Life crossed another setback in Jane's path, when it was announced that she was suffering from Hodgkins lymphoma cancer, which originates in the lymph nodes. This is a highly treatable form of cancer that is survived by 80% of patients who have it.
Despite the fact that this could sink anyone who had to receive the news, the actress has never let it happen to her. From the first moment she was diagnosed, Jane has always been positive and willing to fight to overcome it. Attitude is one of the most important aspects in these moments and, in this sense, she has already won a lot.
