There’s finally some good news for Furious Pete.

The YouTube fitness expert, otherwise known as Peter Czerwinski, has been publicly battling testicular cancer that spread to his lymph nodes on his channels, from updating fans on his hair falling out to what radiation treatment really looks like. Now he’s got positive news to share. 

In the tearful video, Czerwinski shares that after doing his blood work his HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) levels have dropped below 1, which Czerwinski describes as “super low.”

One of the indicators of testicular cancer is high HCG levels. Czerwinski said they were up at 11 before he started treatment, and now they’re in the normal range. 

The joy on Czerwinski is unmistakable, and we’re so happy for him. Next up for the YouTuber: a trip to China.
