Bridges added that his scan coincided with the Capitol riots, “To see our country attacking itself broke my heart,” Bridges writes. “A question rose in me – what’s an individual to do in a situation like this? My mentor, [artist] Rozzell Sykes, came to mind. His mantra was ‘be love’.
Jeff first announced that he had been diagnosed with lymphoma back in October. Since then, he has provided his fans with updates throughout his battle. “As the Dude would say.. New S**T has come to light,” he wrote on Twitter. “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,” he added.
