“came back clean”

The announcement regarding the Blink-182 tour came a matter of weeks after their co founder Mark Hoppus confirmed that his latest cancer check up “came back clean”.

Hoppus was diagnosed with a stage 4 cancer over 18 months ago. However, thankfully he has been given an all-clear since then.

“Very grateful today,” Hoppus wrote, “my scan came back clean and I’m cancer-free”.

“I have so much to be thankful for today”, Hoppus wrote last November “This photo is from June, halfway through chemo, no idea if it was working or not, relegated to the bathroom floor, retching”. 

He also added, “If I ever complain about something trivial or unimportant, please show me this photo to remind me of how bad things can be, and how truly blessed I am”. More on this from Nova here.
