Last week on Twitch, Hoppus updated fans that his chemo was about to begin and he would know relatively quickly if it would work out for him or not. "The test is to find out if my chemotherapy is working at all. And if it is, then I go back for at least three more rounds,” he shared. “Ideally, I go in tomorrow and they say, 'Congratulations! Your chemotherapy has worked and you are all done, and you'll never have to think about this cancer again for the rest of your life.' I hope."

"If I go in tomorrow and they're like, 'It's kinda working, we think it's working,' we'll see. Then I'll still do three more rounds, I think. And if they say, 'Well it's really not working like we'd hoped,' then I have to go and talk about other options. Which I guess means a bone marrow transplant."

Well, there's some good news. In an update to his Instagram story today, Hoppus said “Scans indicate that the chemo is working! I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news. I’m so grateful and confused and also sick from last week’s chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer. Just gotta keep fighting…”

We wish Hoppus a speedy recovery.
