Dennis Hopper Battles Prostate Cancer

Apocalypse Now star, Dennis Hopper, has canceled his travel and work commitments in order to treat his recently diagnosed prostate cancer.

Manager for the 73-year-old Easy Rider actor, Sam Maydew, tells E! Online, “We’re hoping for the best.” Currently, Hopper is receiving treatment at the University of Southern California.

As a result, the actor was unable to attend his photography exhibit in Melbourne, Dennis Hopper and the New Hollywood, at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. Be sure to send happy thoughts his way!
