Many of his peers were quick to offer words of encouragement and love.

@TheJeffBridges Oh my. Man. My prayers are with you my friend. Sending love and a big hug. xo

@TheJeffBridges @bowiesongs A cancer diagnosis is scary. When my fiancé had cancer, he was told it was either Lymphoma or another one. We were praying lymphoma because the prognosis is so good. I know it’s impossible to think of a cancer diagnosis as lucky, but this is very beatable. My very best wishes.
