In the comics, Jane became Thor after Original Sin, when Nick Fury whispered something in Odinson’s ear, causing him to become unworthy of wielding the hammer.

What happens to Thor when Jane becomes Thor?
However, Jane is dying of breast cancer and being the goddess of Thunder only exacerbates her condition. (The transformation actually purges all “toxins” — including the chemo — from her body every time she becomes Thor.) She continues as Thor, eventually becoming an Avenger. Her cancer also continues to spread.
