The legendary actor and political activist shared that her cancer had gone into remission via a post on her website.

In the post titled “Best Birthday Present Ever,” Fonda wrote, “Last week I was told by my oncologist that my cancer is in remission and I can discontinue chemo.”

“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 wrote.
