“Just saw my oncologist and I’m cancer free!!” Hoppus wrote this evening. “Thank you to God and the universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support and kindness and love.”


He continued: “[I] Still have to get scans every six months and it will take me till the end of the year to get back to normal but today is a wonderful day and I feel so blessed. Can I have W in chat?”

Last Monday (September 20), Hoppus wrote on Instagram that her hair was “turning back white” after the treatment.

“It’s so weird that the hair on my head is growing back, while the hair on my legs keeps falling back and down, now down my shin,” he said. “I’ve been on chemotherapy for five months and today my shin hair decides it’s time for peace? Cancer is weird.”

Hoppus, who had the same type of cancer his mother was cured of, previously said he was “determined to kick cancer’s ass straight into the maniac”.


Following the musician’s initial statement on his diagnosis, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and former guitarist Tom DeLong both voiced their support for their friend, the latter calling Hoppus a “real-life superhero”.
