AceShowbiz - Jane Fonda feels "good" amid her battle with cancer. After announcing in September she had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, the 84-year-old actress is now "halfway through" chemotherapy and has found it "easier than a lot of other" treatment options.
"I'm not losing my hair. I don't feel nauseous. The week when I get the chemo is hard, but then after that, I feel good. I feel very strong," she said.
And the "Grace and Frankie" star even finds the time to workout on her treatment days. She told People magazine, "I've lived a good life. I've lived a productive and intentional life. And dying is part of life. I hope that I can be an example to young people so they won't be afraid of getting older."
"But you just have to take care of yourself, which I do even now. Even the days that I get chemo, I still do a workout. It's slow and not what it used to be, but still, I'm moving and keeping strong."
Jane turns 85 last month but started her celebrations early with a party in Atlanta on Thursday, November 10 that raised over $1 million for the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power Potential (GCAPP), the teen pregnancy prevention and adolescent health organisation she founded in 1995.
During the sale, the "9 to 5" actress offered a lot where the bidder could join her for drinks at home. She noted, "And I won't be on chemo so I will be having a lot of drinks." The winner will also get to join her in January at the premiere of her upcoming movie "80 for Brady".
