Dennis Hopper Defeated by Prostate Cancer


Dennis Hopper


Dennis Hopper has finally met his final in battling prostate cancer since the deadly disease has spread to his bones.

Acting legend Dennis Hopper is losing his battle with prostate cancer after the deadly disease spread to his bones, according to a British report. The "Easy Rider" veteran revealed his struggle with the illness in October 2009, after he was admitted to hospital suffering from "severe flu-like symptoms."

He immediately underwent treatment at the University of Southern California, but doctors admit hopes for the 73 year old are fading after the cancer spread, according to Britain's News of the World newspaper. According to the publication, medics have informed Hopper - who has battled the disease since 2002 - that his cancer is incurable and that he may be facing his final days.

Dennis Hopper made his acting debut in 1955 when he portrayed a young epileptic in TV series called "Medic". Some other movies that the 74-year-old actor has played included "Legacy", "Land of the Dead", "Sleepwalking" and "An American Carol".

    His strength on the screen is not to be matched. I met him personally during James Deans heyday and have always thought vey highly of his acting skills. I am a P.C. survivor myself and am thankful I am. My hat is off to Dennis !

    Dennis Hopper is a great actor and it is a shame that his life is coming to an end so soon...but, he has had a very good and wealthy life.He has friends and a family that have brought him much happiness. Most of my life is done and my life can't even compare to his.....still, I will die, and die without the generous life that he has had. So, who will die the most satisfied?? Good Luck to you Mr. Hopper, I hope you get your miracle that you are hoping for....
