Blink-182 frontman Mark Hoppus provides update on his chemotherapy


Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus has taken to Twitch to update fans regarding his chemotherapy treatment for his cancer.

Hoppus revealed his cancer battle last week and had best wishes flying in from every direction imaginable. Thankfully, his latest comments are positive and provide hope to his fans about the ongoing situation. The Blink-182 man is yet to disclose which type of cancer he is fighting.

“How am I feeling today? I feel much better than yesterday. Yesterday was hellish for me,” Hoppus said during a game of Blinko, in aid of Children’s Hospital LA, on his Twitch channel. “I woke up today feeling better – I went for a walk, and I had a decent breakfast, and I haven’t felt like I was going to throw up today, so we’ll take it as a win,” he added.

Hoppus continued: “I’ve actually, like, watched movies and walked around and cleaned the house and hung out with my dogs. Then I didn’t just feel like a poisoned electrified zombie leaned up against an electric fence like I did the rest, the past couple of rounds.”

His treatment has left him unable to leave the house, and Hoppus spoke about his frustrations about watching the LA Dodgers game at home rather than in the stands.

“I wanted to go to the Dodgers last night – I can’t,” he moaned. “I want to go hang out with friends and go to a restaurant – I can’t. My white blood cell count is way too low for me to go out so I am stuck trying to get better. That’s alright, I’ll take it.”

In his initial statement last week, Hoppus said: “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 drummer Travis Barker offered up his support to his bandmate, and told E! News, “Mark is my brother and I love and support him. I will be with him every step of the way on stage and off and can’t wait for us to play together again soon.”
