Jeff Bridges Provides Update On Tumor Status After Cαncer Battle
After overcoming cαncer, Jeff Bridges shared some encouraging news about his health. The Big Lebowski actor revealed that his tumor is in remission after shrinking “to the size of a marble” in a cover story interview with AARP.
“A lot of getting better was a matter of setting really small goals. At first they’d say, ‘How long can you stand?’ For a while, my record was 45 seconds before I’d collapse. And then they were saying: ‘Oh, look, you’re standing for a minute. That’s so cool, now can you walk 5 feet,'” says the actor.
Although Bridges is currently in remission, he revealed that he had severe deαth fears after contracting COVID during his chemotherapy.
“I got this letter from the chemo place informing me I had contracted COVID. I had no immune system to fight it. Chemo had wiped that out, which made it really, really tough,” He recalled, then went on to say that “cancer was nothing compared to COVID.”
Parade magazine shared a post on Twitter in the same incident and stated: The ‘Big Lebowski’ star is on the mend!
