Dennis Hopper Defeated by Prostate Cancer
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".
