Bridges shared with PEOPLE 在五月 2022 that he spent almost five months in the hospital when his health struggles were at their worst.
“I had no defenses. That’s what chemo does — it strips you of all your immune system. I had nothing to fight it,” 他说. “COVID made my cancer look like nothing.”
He said that he couldn’t roll over in bed without calling the nurse to help him with oxygen. “I was pretty close to dying. The doctors kept telling me, ‘Jeff, you’ve got to fight. You’re not fighting.’ I was in surrender mode. I was ready to go. I was dancing with my mortality,” 他说.
