“This cancer is making me appreciate my mortality, appreciate impermanence,” he added. “I’m realizing if I have shit to share, now’s the time.”

Bridges first revealed he had been diagnosed with lymphoma on Oct. 19.

I’m happy that Bridges is getting so much love and feels loved during this time. A cancer diagnosis has to be hard to cope with. It sounds like he’s getting the support he needs to step up and kick this cancer’s ass.
