Jeff Bridges Shares Cancer Battle Update, Says Tumor Has 'Drastically Shrunk'

Jeff Bridges is sharing a positive update amid his cancer battle!

The 71-year-old Oscar shared an update with fans regarding his lymphoma diagnosis, revealing that his tumor has “drastically shrunk” amid ongoing treatment.

“January 6th I go in for CAT scan to see if my new protocol is shrinking my tumor. Turns out it’s working beautifully,” Jeff wrote on his website. “The thing has drastically shrunk. I come home elated with the news.”

The same day Jeff received his good news was the same day Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building in Washington, DC.

“I turn on the TV to find out what’s going in the world, and….well…I don’t have to you what’s goin’ on,” Jeff continued. “To see our country attacking itself broke my heart. A question rose in me – what’s an individual to do in a situation like this? My mentor, Rozzell Sykes, came to mind. His manta was Be Love.”

Jeff first announced that he had been diagnosed with lymphoma back in October. Since then, Jeff has provided his fans with updates throughout his battle, including shaving off all his hair and adopting a new puppy last month.
