Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has posted an update to his Facebook page regarding  his ongoing battle with cancer. Last year he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and immediately began chemotherapy and other treatments.

The update says "For those of you that give a toss, here's the latest and greatest on my cancer situation," posted Campbell on his Facebook page. "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."



"The plan is to do a stem cell transplant as soon as the tour is finished," he added. "However, to keep me in remission my doctors have recommended that I do another, 3rd, round of the chemo (I.C.E.), so I'm back in hospital, all hooked up and doing my rock n' roll drugs. Keef would be most proud!"
