Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges, best known for his character as a stoner bowler for The Big Lebowski, revealed that he has lymphoma.

Lymphoma is a type of cancer that starts by infecting the fighting cells of our immune system. These cells are known as lymphocytes and commonly called white blood cells. The attack happens to our bone marrow, thymus, spleen, lymph nodes, and other body parts. The condition changes the way the white blood cells work, and they grow out of control.
