Jeff Bridges is going to keep on keeping on.
Ten days after the Hollywood legend first shared news of his lymphoma diagnosis, he posted a heartwarming health update to his website on Thursday, Oct. 29.
Accompanied by a photo of Bridges proudly posing in a hospital gown and some hand-drawn doodles, The Big Lebowski star wrote, “This cancer thing is bringing on feelings of precociousness & gratitude & good old fashion love & lots of it, big time. I’m feeling so much of it comin’ my way, & man I appreciate it.”
Bridges continued, “It’s contagious, all this love, like some kind of positive virus. I want to acknowledge & thank you guys for reaching out during this time. It feels good, getting all the well wishes & love!”
“This cancer is making me appreciate my mortality, appreciate impermanence,” the 70-year-old added. “I’m realizing if I have s–t to share, now’s the time.”
