Jane Fonda was spotted out and about in Los Angeles for the first time since she announced her cancer diagnosis earlier this month.

Fonda, 84, was seen sitting in the waiting room of an LA car wash while she waited for her car to be cleaned.

The actress and model sat cross-legged in a pair of black slacks, a black jacket, and with a grey scarf thrown over her shoulders.

She wore a black and grey mask to match over her nose and mouth, a pair of tortoise-shell sunglasses, and her silver hair up in her latest signature look.

On her feet she wore white socks and pair of black loafers.

With a bag at her side, she kept her eyes on her phone and could be seen peering over her shoulder and out the waiting room window.

The sighting comes a week after she published a blog post in which she said she was ‘deeply moved and uplifted by the expressions of love from fans’ she received after announcing her non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis.

Fonda also said she was due to start chemotherapy within weeks, and that despite battling the disease twice before, she’d been told her condition is ‘very treatable.’

In the post, Jane wrote: ‘I have been deeply moved and uplifted by all the expressions of love and support since I made public the fact that I’ve been diagnosed with B-cell Non-Hodgins Lymphoma.

‘My heartfelt thanks to all. The messages of love and support mean the world to me.’

‘I want to say again that this is a very treatable cancer and much progress has been made with the medicines patients are given,’ she added.

‘Since last week, so many people have written to me or posted that they have had this type of cancer and have been cancer-free for many decades.

‘Well, I’ll soon be 85 so I won’t have to worry about ”many decades.” One will do just fine.’

Detailing her current state of health, Jane explained she is feeling well ahead of her first chemotherapy session, and is following her doctor’s advice to keep active.

She added: ‘Today, about 3 weeks from my first chemo session, I must tell you that I feel stronger than I have in years.

‘The doctor told me the best antidote to the tiredness that chemotherapy can cause is to move. Walk. And I have been walking. Very early before the record heat kicks in. Also working out.’

Jane also shared a YouTube video that showed her doing squats against a large green ball while holding a pair of dumbbells.

Fonda noted that this is not her first bout with the disease, as she has survived breast cancer, ‘and come through very well and she will do so again.’

She continued: ‘As I said in my statement last week, I am painfully aware that the top-drawer treatment I receive is not something everyone in this country can count on and I consider that a travesty. It isn’t fair, and I will continue to fight for quality health care for all.’

She also noted that she is committed to her work ‘confronting the urgent climate crisis, caused by fossil fuels’ and will continue to campaign for the cause despite her health battle.

‘This diagnosis has only made me more determined than ever to continue to end the deadly effects of fossil fuels,’ she continued.

‘While most of us know that fossil fuels are the primary cause of the climate crisis, many may not know that fossil fuel emissions also cause cancer as well as other major health problems like birth defects, childhood leukemia, heart attacks, strokes, lung disease and preterm birth,’ Fonda said.

She added that we as a society, ‘must come together to put an end to this deadly correlation,’ and that too many families have suffered.

‘It does not have to be this way. We have it within our power to change this and I intend to do everything in my power to do so. This cancer will not deter me,’ she insisted.

She went onto ask her fans to visit JanePAC.com, ‘to learn about our work to elect climate champions across the country and counter the outsized influence fossil fuel companies have on our government,’ while asking them to donate, ‘whatever you can.’

‘We need you, your friends, your family and colleagues. With the crucial midterms around the corner, it’s all hands on deck!’ she said.

‘Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your loving thoughts!’ she concluded.

On September 2, Jane took to Instagram to reveal she’d been diagnosed with cancer for the third time.

She wrote: ‘So, my dear friends, I have something personal I want to share.

‘I’ve been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and have started chemo treatments. This is a very treatable cancer. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky.’

The thrice-married star, who has previously battled the disease, went on to say she was ‘lucky’ to ‘have health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatment.’

Fonda, a two-time Oscar winner, added that she is ‘privileged as a celebrity.’

She has previously been diagnosed with both breast and skin cancer, and blamed the latter on her past love of sunbathing.

Fonda says she attended the 2016 Golden Globes in a ruffled white dress designed to disguise recent surgery she’d had to remove her breast.

She told Vogue: ‘I get out of the car and I have the strange white dress with all the ruffles? That’s because I’d just had a mastectomy and I had to cover my bandages.’

In her Instagram post, Fonda reassured fans and loved ones and said she would need to acclimate to a new reality as she fights the cancer.

‘Cancer is a teacher and I’m paying attention to the lessons it holds for me,’ she wrote. ‘One thing it’s shown me already is the importance of community. Of growing and deepening one’s community so that we are not alone.

‘And the cancer, along with my age – almost 85 – definitely teaches the importance of adapting to new realities.’

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of cancer that affects the body’s immune system, with symptoms including swollen lymph nodes, abdominal and chest pain, fevers, fatigue and weight loss.

The cancer can occur at any age, but the risks increases with age as it’s most common in people 60 and over, according to the Mayo Clinic.

In 2018 Fonda had a cancerous growth removed from her lower lip, which was likely basal-cell carcinoma (the most common form of skin cancer).

‘I just want to explain the bandage,’ the 80-year-old acting legend told the AOL BUILD Series audience.

‘I just had a cancer taken from my lip. I thought it was going to heal in time before I came before you, but it’s fine. I just want to explain it. I don’t normally go around like this. The world is falling apart. What’s a lip?’

Fonda has been open about the health implications of getting older, admitting her ‘whole body hurts’ because of osteoporosis, a condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break.

‘The fact that I hurt a lot – my body hurts – is a surprise to me, and it’s not because of all that working out,’ she said.

‘It’s genetic. My father Henry had it, my brother Peter had it. Your cartilage disappears and then it’s bone on bone, and then “ow”. But we live in a time where you can just get a new one.’

 

Cancer of the lymph nodes which affects 13,700 new people every year in the UK

Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymph nodes, which is the body’s disease-fighting network.

That network consists of the spleen, bone marrow, lymph nodes and thymus gland.

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma can occur anywhere in the body but is usually first noticed in the lymph nodes around sufferers’ necks.

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma affects around 13,700 new people every year in the UK. In the US, more than 74,600 people are diagnosed annually.

It is more common in males than females, and it is commonly diagnosed either in a patient’s early 20s or after the age of 55.

Five-year survival rates:

Survival can vary widely with NHL.

The general survival rate for five years is 70 percent, and the chance of living 10 years is approximately 60 percent.

Symptoms include:

  • Painless swellings in the neck, armpit or groin
  • Heavy night sweating
  • Unexplained weight loss of more than one-tenth of a person’s body
  • Itching

Risk factors:

  • over 75
  • have a weak immune system
  • suffer from celiac disease
  • have a family history of the condition
  • have had other types of cancer

Treatment:

It depends on the number and locations of the body affected by Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Therapy typically includes chemotherapy.
