Beating cancer is one of those things that there really is no proper way to celebrate. Even the biggest celebration in the world doesn’t feel adequate, but that doesn’t stop us from trying. Twitter user blomdotcomm (we’ll call him BDC, Because Damn, he’s Cool) recently shared his truly legendary way of marking the end of his cancer treatments, and even just watching the video has us all hopped-up.
While still in the hospital, our hero approaches the traditional post-cancer bell, one that patients look forward to ringing as a symbol of completing their cancer treatments. For most, this gesture is the only celebration that happens within the confines of the hospital. But BDC came prepared.
He steps onto a towel as the cheers of those who came to support him turn to laughter as he summons a can of Busch Light seemingly from thin air. Holding a set of keys in one hand and the can in the other, this absolute madlad proceeds to shotgun the whole damn thing in a matter of seconds.
BDC shared the video on Twitter with the caption, “ever shotgun a beer in a hospital? Done with chemo. Done with cancer!”

The tweet has accumulated over 35,000 likes in just two days and support for both BDC’s cancer-free status and his method of celebrating poured in from around the world. If the hospital beer was any indication, our dude has a lot more celebrating to do – but he’s taking the time to respond to dozens of comments, providing words of encouragement to others battling cancer.
Huge congrats, BDC – cheers!
