Check out the actress’ full statement:

“This is a very treatable cancer. 80%]of people survive, so I feel very lucky. I’m also lucky because I have health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatments. I realize, and it’s painful, that I’m privileged in this. Almost every family in America has had to deal with cancer at one time or another, and many don’t have access to the quality health care I’m getting and that’s just not right.

I’ve been on chemo for six months and I’m handling the treatments very well, and believe me, I’m not going to let any of this interfere with my climate activism. Cancer is a teacher and I am paying attention to the lessons it brings me. One thing that has already shown me is the importance of community. To grow and deepen the community so that we are not alone. And cancer, along with my age – almost 85 – definitely teaches the importance of adapting to new realities.

We are living through the most important moment in human history, because what we do or don’t do now will determine what kind of future there will be, and I will not allow cancer to stop me from doing everything I can, using every possible tool. The midterm elections are approaching, and they are beyond the consequences, so you can count on me to be there alongside you as we grow our army of climate champions.”
