Jeff Bridges, ‘The Dude,’ has been diagnosed with Lymphoma


 

Actor Jeff Bridges, aka The Dude, His Dudeness, Duder, or El Duderino, announced yesterday on Twitter that he’s been diagnosed with lymphoma.

Bridges was born and raised in California, and has been acting pretty much his entire life. You may know him (very likely his most famous role) as Jeff Lebowski in The Big Lebowski, or one of his other many notable films like True Grit, Crazy Heart, Seabiscuit, Iron Man, The Fisher King, The Fabulous Baker Boys, TRON, or The Last Picture Show, to name a few.

Lymphoma is a type of cancer that affects infection-fighting cells of the immune system in the lymph nodes, spleen, and other parts of the body. Lymphoma is treatable, but depends on the type of lymphoma and how far it’s progressed. We’re sending positive vibes to The Dude and his family, but we all know one thing for sure: “this aggression will not stand, man.” Check out the full story at CNN.com.
