According a report by Loudwire and TMZ and confirmed by a representative for the band, Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus has announced he’s battling cancer. Mark shared a post on Instagram, which he later deleted, divulging his fight. It sounds like he expects to recover. Mark’s post commented:
“For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer. 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 be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the hopefully near future. Love to you all.”
“Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please,” the Instagram Story read.
Best of luck Mark – go kick cancer’s ass!
