BLINK-182 singer and bassist Mark Hoppus has announced that he is now cancer free.

Hoppus had been battling a blood disorder called stage 4-A diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which is the same type of cancer his mother previously beat. Mark completed his chemotherapy treatment earlier this month, and posted an update to his Instagram account yesterday (Wednesday, September 29) to write: “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 months and it’ll take until the end of the year to get back to normal but today is an amazing day and I feel so blessed.”

The BLINK-182 bassist initially broke the news of his diagnosis on June 23 by posting a photo of himself with the accompanying caption: “Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please.” He later said that he had been undergoing treatment for three months.

“It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this,” Hoppus wrote at the time. “I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive. Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the hopefully near future. Love to you all.”

In July, he said that his “chemo [was] working. I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news,” he added. “I’m so grateful and confused and also sick from the last week’s chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying the cancer.”
