Singer Mark Hoppus has recently said that he is now cancer-free.
The 49-year-old musician was diagnosed with stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma earlier this year.
On Wednesday, Hoppus shared the news in a statement posted to his social media accounts.
He wrote, “Just saw my oncologist and I’m cancer free!! Thank you God and universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support and kindness and love.”
“Still have to get scanned every six month and it’ll take me until the end of the year to get back to normal but today is an amazing day and I feel so blessed,” continue Hoppus, who is the bassist and co-lead vocalist of the rock band Blink-182.
Fans and friends were quick to comment with congratulatory messages for Hoppus. Actor Adam Devine wrote, “Agghhhghh!!! YES!!! Thank God! Congrats buddy! Best feeling in the world. Enjoy it!!!!”
“CONGRATS BUDDY,” wrote Canadian singer Pierre Bouvier.
English DJ Samantha Ronson wrote, “F— yes!!!! I don’t even know you and this made MY day!!! Awesome!!!”
Hoppus first shared the news of cancer diagnosis in late June.
In July, he said that he has stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, adding that his cancer is not related to bone. In a recording captured by the YouTube account Blink-182 Chile, Hoppus said, “My blood’s trying to kill me. My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it’s entered four different parts of my body.”
Earlier this month, he posted a photo of his scalp on Instagram, sharing that his hair is growing back after the fifth round of chemotherapy. He wrote, “Hahaha. Look at this trash. This is the top of my head right now. This is what God sees when He looks down upon His work and despairs.”
“I feel like this is still the cancery peach fuzz hair and maybe my normal hair will start growing again?” he added. “It’s so strange to have hair growing back more on my head while my leg hair continues to fall out further and further down, now at the bottom of my shins.”
Hoppus also said at the time, “I’ve been in chemotherapy for five months and TODAY the hair on my shins decides it’s time to peace out? Cancer is weird.” The story appeared on PEOPLE.
