In a very welcome bit of good news, Mark Hoppus is now “cancer free.”

The Blink-182 bassist/vocalist shared the announcement in an Instagram post Wednesday.

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

Hoppus added that he still needs to “get scanned every six months” and that it will take him “until the end of the year to get back to normal.”

“But today is an amazing day and I feel so blessed,” he wrote. “Can I get a W in the chat?”

Hoppus revealed he’d been diagnosed with cancer back in June. He’d been documenting his journey through chemotherapy over the last few months with the sincerity and humor he’s known for. He even changed his Twitter bio to describe himself as a “cancer haver,” which has now been triumphantly changed to “cancer destroyer.”
