Mark Hoppus Gives Cancer Update: “The Chemo Is Working!”

Last week, Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus revealed he was preparing to “take a test that may very well determine if I live or die.” Now, Hoppus has announced that the results are in and he got “the best possible news.”

“Scans indicate that the chemo is working!” Hoppus said. “I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news. I’m so grateful and confused and also sick from last week’s chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer.”

Read his statement below.

In a previous update, Hoppus revealed he’s been diagnosed with 4-A diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which is the same type of cancer his mother successfully beat.

The GENRE IS DEAD! team are happy to hear the good news from Mark and wishes him well in his recovery! Hopefully, he’ll be able to beat this cancer as his mother did.
