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.”
He later followed up with some reflections about the diagnosis, “This cancer thing is bringing on feelings of preciousness and gratitude & good old fashion love, & lots of it comin' my way, & man, I appreciate it. It's contagious, all this love, like some kind of positive virus. I want to acknowledge & thank you guys for reaching out during this time. It feels good, getting all the well wishes & love!”
Bridges continued, “This cancer is making me appreciate my mortality, appreciate impermanence. I'm realizing if I have s**t to share, now's the time.”
