Jeff Bridges Lymphoma Update

It was only in October that beloved actor Jeff Bridges posted to social media saying, "As the Dude would say.. New S**T has come to light. I have been diagnosed with Lymphoma. Although it is a serious disease, I feel fortunate that I have a great team of doctors and the prognosis is good. I'm starting treatment and will keep you posted on my recovery."

"The Dude" has kept his promise and has been posting to his website. Not only does he speak on how he is doing but also displays his fun drawings and powerful messages he hopes his fans take to heart. Most recently he posted a photo of himself with a fun surprise!

In the photo, you can see his shaved head and his heart-melting new puppy, Monty! 

And on his website, he wrote his thoughts in his classic Jeff Bridges charming cursive embedded with colorful images and fun doodles. He wrote, "Well... here's the next batch of what I want to point out. MUSIC - we need it, man, & all our musicians are having a hell of a a time makin' a living these days w/ the COVID deal - No venues, can't play anywhere." 

Jeff then linked music to a bunch of artists he wanted to highlight like his longtime friend John Goodwin who he calls his "Old friend... I'm talking OLD friend, man. We go back to the 4th grade." Alongside, he posted a photo of the two as young kids!


Jeff also posted important charities he supports and encouraged fans to support also like No Kid Hungry. "The health of our children can serve as a compass, letting us know if we're on course or not - we're OFF COURSE - Especially during the COVID deal."

On his site are countless of his heartwarming messages filled with his fun drawings that are even animated and in movement throughout his text! Be sure to check them out here.
