Now, the tumor has shrunk until it reaches “the size of a marble“.
On the other hand, the recovery from COVID was very difficult: “I didn’t have an immune system to fight it. The chemotherapy had wiped it out, which made things very, very difficult“, he recalled. “For me, cancer was nothing compared to Covid“.
“I could not understand how one could fight. So I fought by giving up, which doesn’t mean giving up“explained Bridges. ”What I was really feeling at that moment was love, which amplified during that time. Not only from the people around me, but also from the love I had in my heart for them. So what I did was surrender to love“.
