Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus says he doesn’t have cancer
After revealing for the first time that he has stage four diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and is undergoing chemotherapy treatment to combat it, Blink-182 frontman Mark Hoppus is no longer cancer.
“I just saw my oncologist and I have no more cancer !!” Hoppus shared on Instagram and Twitter. “Thank you God and the universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support, kindness and love.”
Hoppus, 49, who still has to undergo checkups every six months, said it would take some time to get back to normal. “It will take me until the end of the year to get back to normal, but today is an amazing day and I feel so blessed,” added Hoppus.
When he first shared that he had cancer, Hoppus didn’t reveal the exact type until later. Hoppus, who has teenage son Jack with wife Skye Everly, has since added the word ‘cancer killer to his Twitter bio and recently shared that his hair is growing back, albeit white.
A friend and colleagues have already shown their support for Hoppus online. Alex Gaskarth from All Time Low wrote “The best news in the world”, when he learned that Hoppus was cancer free. Actor Adam Devine wrote “Congratulations buddy! The best feeling in the world. Enjoy it! “
Benji Madden shared his best wishes for Hoppus and noted “Delighted with this, so happy to know that the man really made my day to hear this, thank you for sharing that you are blessed brother”, while Wolfgang Van Halen wrote, “Fucking man yeah !!! That made my day. Giving you the biggest W in the chat possible.
