“Last week I was told by my oncologist that my cancer is in remission and I can discontinue chemo,” Jane shared via her website on December 15. “I am feeling so blessed, so fortunate. I thank all of you who prayed and sent good thoughts my way. I am confident that it played a role in the good news,” she added, calling it the “best birthday present ever.”
The This Is Where I Leave You star previously revealed that her form of cancer “is a very treatable cancer,” adding in her original announcement that “80 percent of people survive.”
The Grace and Frankie alum first announced her diagnosis via Instagram on September 2, sharing that she was undergo six months of chemotherapy and was already “handling the treatments quite well.” Jane assured fans that she “will not let any of this interfere” with her climate activism.
“Cancer is a teacher and I’m paying attention to the lessons it holds for me. One thing it’s shown me already is the importance of community,” she continued, adding, “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.”
“Handling this with grace, intelligence and selflessness, as always,” Katie Couric commented beneath Jane’s post. “Holding you in our hearts.” The former Today host opened up about her own battle with breast cancer that same month.
“Ever a teacher, and always a legend,” One Tree Hill actress Sophia Bush wrote. “Thank you for sharing your perspective as you share your current reality, Jane. In awe of you. Sending love.”
In the weeks that followed Jane’s announcement, she kept to her promise and continued her climate activism. In addition, she has shared several videos while at home about upcoming climate change rallies and protests. On Halloween, the Academy Award winner snapped a photo while working out with her trainer, Malin Svensson. “Yes, I am working out!” Jane captioned the picture.
On her blog, Jane shared a clip of one of her workout sessions. In the video, the 9 to 5 star did squats up against a wall with weights in her hands and a smile on her face. She has battled cancer before, previously revealing she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 and had a mastectomy in 2016. In 2018, the mom of three had a cancerous growth removed from her lip.
“This is not my first encounter with cancer,” Jane wrote on her blog in September 2022. “I’ve had breast cancers and had a mastectomy and come through very well and I will do so again.”
