The Oscar-winning star also directed fans to a new website that will form an online journal of his health updates.
Bridges wrote: “This cancer thing is bringing on feelings of preciousness, and gratitude, and good old fashion love, and lots of it, big time.
“I’m feeling so much of it comin’ my way, and man, I appreciate it. It’s contagious, all this love, like some kind of positive virus.”
Bridges went on to direct fans to a video of his band performing their ‘Welcome Mat’, encouraging fans to vote ahead of next week’s election.
In another link, fans are shown a video of Bridges discussing the importance of environmentally-friendly guitars in order to “take care of our trees.”
Bridges signed off: “I’m lookin’ to be in a partnership with you guys in creating a beautiful life and world for all of us.”
Bridges’ last film was 2018’s Bad Times At The El Royale, in which he starred alongside Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson, Cynthia Erivo and Chris Hemsworth. Last year, it was announced Bridges was cast in the forthcoming FX drama series The Old Man.
