BLINK-182 singer and bassist Mark Hoppus has revealed that he is battling cancer.
Mark broke the news of his diagnosis through a photo of himself that he posted to social media in what appears to be a medical facility with an accompanying caption: “Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please.”
Hoppus has since released the following statement: “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.”
BLINK-182’s latest album, “Nine”, was released in September 2019 via Columbia Records and includes singles “I Really Wish I Hated You”, “Darkside”, “Happy Days”, “Generational Divide” and “Blame It On My Youth”.
BLINK-182 is Hoppus, Travis Barker (drums) and Matt Skiba (vocals/guitar). A guitarist and singer with ALKALINE TRIO, Skiba replaced original BLINK-182 singer Tom DeLonge in 2016.
