Jeff Bridges announces that he has lymphoma and is in treatment

A post shared by Jeff Bridges (@thejeffbridges) on

Beloved actor, devoted husband and father and all-around standup guy, Jeff Bridges, 70, has announced that he has lymphoma and is in treatment for it. He has not specified whether he has Hodgkin’s or non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Here are Jeff’s tweets about it. He wrote that he has a great team of doctors and that the prognosis is good. His last tweet was just five days ago and he seemed to be posting every few days before that.

Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. And, while I have you, please remember to go vote. Because we are all in this together. https://t.co/6sAU4MYixl

Love, Jeff

Can 2020 just fast forward to a time when everything is ok and the Dude is healthy? We never hear a bad word about Jeff Bridges, and he’s usually making headlines for gushing about his wife. (Plus he voted for Hillary like every decent person.)

Let’s talk about the stuff Jeff is promoting because we didn’t cover it at the time. (He’s so uncontroversial that people don’t typically comment, you know?) He has a new line of eco-friendly guitars with Breedlove which are made from sustainable wood. He also has a new book out with his daughter, Isabelle, called Daddy Daughter Day. Jeff illustrated the book and wrote it in cursive and Isabelle wrote it based on her experiences with Jeff growing up. They did an interview on Today which is linked below. Jeff said he wrote it in cursive because he loves handwriting and wants to encourage the use of cursive! Isabelle said when her dad was away when she was little he would call her and ask her to imagine they were meeting up in a tree or flying away together in their dreams. When she explained that part Jeff looked so proud and it was adorable!

A portion of proceeds from the book will go to No Kid Hungry, a cause which Jeff has been involved with for years. He told Today it’s important, especially now, because so many children get their nutrition from school lunches. Jeff also talked about a lullaby that’s been in his family for years. You can learn about the history of that and hear Jeff sing it on their website, DaddyDaughterDay.com.

Our thoughts are with Jeff during his treatment. F-ck cancer.
