Mark Hoppus Of Blink-182 Opens Up About His Cancer: 'It Sucks And I'm Scared'


Mark Hoppus, the legendary pop punk band Blink-182's singer and bassist, revealed Wednesday that he has been undergoing chemotherapy for the past three months.

“I have cancer. It stinks, and I'm scared, but I'm also blessed with incredible doctors, family, and friends to help me get through this,” he said in a social media statement.

He said he still has months of treatment ahead of him, but he's trying to stay hopeful and positive, and he didn't say what type of cancer he's fighting.

“Can't wait to be cancer-free and see you all at a concert soon. Love to you all,” he wrote.

On his Instagram story, he also posted a photo of himself hooked up to an IV and captioned it, "Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please."

Hoppus has remained active on social media over the last three months, and Blink-182′s hit album “Take Off Your Pants and Jacket” celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this month.

“After the overwhelming and unexpected success of Enema of the State, we wanted to write a darker, harder album that pushed the boundaries of what blink-182 could do. I love this record,” he wrote, thanking everyone who listened to it back then and still does two decades later.

Hoppus is a member of Blink-182, along with Travis Barker and Matt Skiba, who took over for co-founder Tom DeLonge in 2015.
