Jeff Bridges dances with his daughter after her wedding in the midst of his cancer battle and recovery. On top of his cancer recovery, he’s also been recovering from COVID-19! The 71-year-old actor released a new update recently on his recovery progress. It was after his COVID-19 diagnosis that he said he needed oxygen assistance while doing something as simple as walking.
However, he knew he wanted to push himself to meet a specific milestone by a specific time. “I had a goal—walking my daughter Hayley down the aisle,” he says in a post on his personal website. “She was getting married to a wonderful guy, Justin Shane. Thanks to Zach [Wermers, physical therapist] and my terrific medical team, I was able to, not only walk Hay down the aisle, but do the father/bride dance with her without oxygen.”
