Back in August, he began another round of chemotherapy, calling it the “same cocktail with an added twist,” adding that he only had three months of the treatment to go.

Now, he’s giving his fans and followers another great update, posting good news from his last doctor’s appointment.

“Met with my wonderful retiring oncologist, Dr. Kramers today. Scan results were clear so all is going as planned. Another scan every three months for a while. So grateful to all the doctors, nurses and the healthcare that I received. Not in the clear, but optimistic.”
