Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell battled cancer (Hodgkin's lymphoma) last summer, announced that he went into remission in November and then announced that the disease was back earlier this year.
Things look good, though, with Campbell posting: "I'm currently in Boston and I did a scan on Tuesday morning. The scan shows that the cancer is in remission. Great news, but I'm trying not to get too excited about it, as I heard that same phrase late last year – only to be disappointed again a few months after when it returned."
That is totally understandable, but it's still good news and we're happy for him!
Campbell furthered, "The plan is to do a stem-cell transplant as soon as the tour is finished. However, to keep me in remission, my doctors have recommended that I do another, third round of the chemo, so I'm back in hospital, all hooked up and doing my rock 'n' roll drugs."
We understand his cautious optimism and send our best out to him! We are happy he is beating this disease.
