Mark Hoppus tries to defeat cancer with chemotherapy and explains to his fans how advanced the disease is.
Musician has cancer
In March 2021, Mark Hoppus was given the sad news of cancer in the hospital. Immediately afterwards, the Blink 182 musician went to treatment so that the malignant new tissue formations would not spread throughout his body and spoke to his fans as follows: “For three months I have been undergoing chemotherapy because of cancer. I have cancer. It’s awful and I’m scared. […] I still have months of treatment to go, but I’m trying to stay hopeful and positive. I can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. I [sende] love you all. “
A few weeks have now passed, Hoppus has created a so-called cancer garden in which he breeds “mutated plant varieties” and explained to his followers that he would have important questions answered in July. “I put together a small cancer garden in the yard with mutated varieties because the mutation of my own cells makes me feel connected to them. I’ll be sitting with them tomorrow, have my coffee and we will think together: ‘This is strange’. […] It’s just surreal to think that I’m going to take a test this week that could very well determine whether I’ll live or die. Thank you everyone for the positive thoughts and encouragement. I read all of your answers and it means the world to me. Thank you very much, ”said the Blink 182 musician.
Fourth stage cancer
Mark Hoppus has now been informed about his illness and spoke about his cancer on a Twitch livestream: “I have a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. It has invaded enough parts of my body that I am at stage four, which I believe is the highest level there is. ”
In the further course of the video, the musician is said to have added the following, according to the “Hollywood Reporter”: “It has nothing to do with the bones, but with the blood. My blood tries to kill me. […] Ideally, I’ll go and they’ll say, ‘Congratulations, it worked and you’ll never have to worry about cancer again for the rest of your life.’ I hope so. […] I can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. ”
