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

Hoppus, 49, who still has to undergo scans every six months, said that it will take him some time to get back to normal. “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,” Hoppus added.
