    Blink-182 bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus has revealed that he's officially cancer-free, so there's some good news to come from 2021.

    Earlier this year, he told the world that he'd been diagnosed with cancer, battling diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. He also spoke about his experience with chemotherapy during a Twitch Q&A with Chilean Blink-182 fans, saying, “The first chemo, I felt like I was a zombie that fell onto an electric fence and was just being shocked.

    "The second round of chemo, I just felt very weak and tired. Really just like the worst flu ever. The third round of chemo, I started retching. Nauseous and that whole thing.”

    This time around, the news is much more positive, and we're so glad to hear it. Posting on Instagram, Mark 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 months 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. Can I get a W in the chat?”

    He's spent the last few months documenting his experiences with cancer and chemotherapy on Instagram, including a post talking about whether he's set to look like "George Clooney or Doc Brown" once his hair grows back. We're tipping the former.
