Mark Hoppus Of Blink-182 Announces He’s Cancer-Free

Mark Hoppus, vocalist and bassist for Blink-182, announced on social media that’s cancer-free, just six months after starting treatment.

The singer announced his initial diagnosis on social media on June 23, 2021.

In the announcement, he said he’d been in chemotherapy for three months because he had cancer. He said, “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.”

According to Cancer Research UK, the specific type of lymphoma that Hoppus was diagnosed with, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma stage IV-A, is one of the most aggressive kinds. The average 5-year survival rate is around 50%.

After he announced the news of his diagnosis, Hoppus went on the share little tidbits of his treatment on Twitter and social media.

On July 16, 2021, he wrote, “Had chemo on Wednesday and felt like hot garbage and haven’t really slept since. But this morning, this minute right now, I feel okay. I’ll take it.”

On September 15, Hoppus shared that he had finished his round of chemotherapy. On the 29th, he would know if it worked or not. If it didn’t work, a whole new world of treatment would open up and he’d be faced with a possible bone marrow transplant and more chemotherapy.

But, on September 29, 2021, he shared an update we all hoped for: He was cancer-free!

He said, “Just saw my oncologist and I’m cancer free!!” Hoppus said on Instagram and Twitter. “Thank you God and universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support and kindness and love.”

Mark Hoppus founded Blink-182 with some friends in 1992. They’ve taken some breaks since then, but still continue to do tours and make music today.

It seems with Hoppus’ remission announcement, the band could continue on stronger than ever.
