Blink-182 singer and bassist Mark Hoppus shared Wednesday (June 23) that he has cancer and has been undergoing chemotherapy for the last three months.
The 49-year-old musician opened up on social media about the diagnosis and how he’s remaining “hopeful and positive” for a cancer-free future while he still goes through the next few months of treatment.
“For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer,” Hoppus wrote. “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.”

One cancer treatment, please.” After taking down the concerning photo, he shared the official update on his Instagram Story and Twitter.
