“Scans indicate that the chemo is working!,” the 49-year-old shared via his Instagram Story on Monday. “I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news.”
Although the singer noted that he is happy to have received some good news, he is still deeply struggling with the side effects of chemotherapy. “I’m so grateful and confused and also sick from last week’s chemo,” he wrote, adding: “But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer. Just gonna keep fighting…”
After sparking concern in late June — when he posted an image of himself in what fans presumed was a doctor’s office with the caption, “Yes hello. Once cancer treatment, please” via his Instagram Story — he posted a statement confirming his sad diagnosis.
"For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer," Hoppus explained on June 23. "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. I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive."
He continued: "Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all."
A well-known side effect of chemo is losing hair. The “What’s My Age Again” performer debuted his bald look on July 4. “The Cancer Haver wishes you all a very happy Fourth of July weekend,” he captioned a snap, showing him with no facial hair or eyebrows.
