Jeff Bridges revealed that he was diagnosed with lymphoma three months ago.
But the legendary actor recently told his fans that his cancer is ‘in remission’ and that his large tumor has “shrunk down to the size of a marble.”
“My cancer is in remission,” he wrote. “The 9 x 12 mass has shrunk down to the size of a marble.”
Bridges also added that he caught coronavirus that left him requiring oxygen assistance because it “kicked my a** pretty good.”
“I’m double vaccinated and feeling much better now. I heard that the vaccine can help folks with long haulers. Maybe that’s the cause of my quick improvement,” he wrote.
“I’ve been working out with a great therapist, Zack Wermers. We’ve been concentrating on getting me off the oxygen assistance, which until recently I’ve been needing to walk around. The sound it makes me reminds me of Darth Vader.”
The Fabulous Baker Boys actor was determined to completely recover so he could walk his youngest daughter down the aisle on her wedding day.
“I had a goal – walking my daughter Hayley down the aisle. She was getting married to a wonderful guy, Justin Shane,” he went on.
“Thanks to Zach and my terrific medical team, I was able to not only walk Hay down the aisle, but do the father/bride dance with her without oxygen.”
The Hollywood star plans to go back to work on his Hulu series ‘The Old Man’ where he plays a former intelligence officer living off the radar but finds himself targeted for assassination.
The series, which also stars Amy Brennemen, Alia Shawkat, Gbenga Akinnagbe, and John Lithgow, is set to premier in 2022.
