Cancer touches everyone, whether it’s a family member, friend or beloved celebrity. 39.6% of men and women in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime, according to the National Cancer Institute.
Now Grace and Frankie actress has revealed that she herself has had to battle cancer and have a growth removed.
The 80-year-old actress addressed the bandages she had on her lower lip while promoting the fourth season of the her Netflix series in New York City.
“I just want to explain the bandage. I just had a cancer taken from my lip,” Fonda said. “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,” she continued.
She then took to Instagram with a photo of the Grace and Frankie duo.
“With Lily in NY. I’ve found a clever way to disguise my lip bandages from removal of cancer,” the star captioned the picture.
That same day, she discussed her cancer diagnosis with Howard Stern in an interview.
