"I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive."
blink-182's Mark Hoppus has revealed that he has been receiving chemotherapy for the last three months following a cancer diagnosis.
Mark has shared a short statement on his socials, which you can read in full below:
"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 near future. Love to you all."
Support has been flooding in for Mark, including from his ex-bandmate Tom DeLonge on Twitter.
I too, have been aware of @markhoppus’s cancer diagnosis for awhile now. And to add to his own words that he used today, 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
