Blink-182 bassist and frontman Mark Hoppus shared that he’s been in treatment for cancer for the past three months. Hoppus didn’t reveal the type of cancer he’s been diagnosed with, but he did have a message of hope and optimism.
“For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer,” Hoppus, 49, wrote in social media posts on Twitter and Instagram. “It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this. I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive. Can’t wait to see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all.”
On Instagram, Hoppus followed that up with a photo of himself in a hospital chair with the caption, “Yes hello. One cancer treatment please.” Chemotherapy, which Hoppus mentioned he’s being treated with, involves different drugs (or a combination of drugs) that can kill fast-growing cancer cells, the Mayo Clinic explains. It can be an effective part of treatment for many different types of cancer, but also typically comes with significant side effects, such as nausea and vomiting, fatigue, gastrointestinal issues, and hair loss.
Hoppus’s Blink-182 bandmates, Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge, both shared messages of their support for him. “Mark is my brother and I love and support him,” Barker said in a statement to E! News. “I will be with him every step of the way on stage and off and can’t wait for us to play together again soon.”
DeLonge, who left the band in 2015, said on Twitter that he’s known of Hoppus’s cancer diagnosis for a while now. “And to add to his own words that he used today,” he wrote, “I would also like to say that he is strong, and a super-human who is pushing through this difficult obstacle with a wide-open heart. #WeHaveHisBack.”
