    Hear about more & more celebrities leaving us this year, but this will not stand with Mr. Bridges. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, sir.

    Jeff looks like he's doing well - he's got a great attitude, helpful supports, and a cute puppy to boot.

    I don't know about you, but I take comfort in that.

    Of course any cancer diagnosed at an earlier stage has a better prognosis, but that's not what makes some subtypes of lymphoma more treatable than others. It has to do with the actual cells that present with the disease. Generally non-Hodgkins is the more lethal, but some subtypes of Hodgkins are even worse. I know a bit about this because my kid was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphocyte predominant lymphoma, which is a more treatable type. It's most common in middle aged men and you can understand someone like Bridges being diagnosed, but how my kid got this at age 3 really threw me for a loop, and was just an unmitigated nightmare.

    Plus, he's got the most important thing to get the best health care: tons of money.

    Countries without universal healthcare can be quite that way.

    I can vouch for this. I was diagnosed with a rare form of non-hodgkins about 5 years ago. Good luck to Jeff, it isn't fun.

    Great update from Jeff last week. Tumor's shrinking, good vibes about the state of things, and a new tune.
