Bridges also gave an update in December and revealed he had shaved his head.

“Here’s the latest: Feeling good. Shaved my head. Got a puppy — Monty. Had a birthday — 71, man,” Bridges shared in the Instagram photo caption. Bridges first tweeted about his diagnosis in October.

“I have been diagnosed with Lymphoma,” Bridges wrote on Twitter at the time. “Although it is a serious disease, I feel fortunate that I have a great team of doctors and the prognosis is good.”

“I’m profoundly grateful for the love and support from my family and friends,” he continued. “Thank you for your prayers and well wishes.”
