Back in June, Mark Hoppus revealed that he has diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A. Today, he shared the texts he sent when he knew something was wrong in April, so he reached out to his doctor.

How it started…
Tues, Apr 20, 7:34 AM
Mark: Hi Jill. For the past couple days I’ve had this dull sore lump in my shoulder kind of right where it connects to my neck that could either be fatal lymphoma or a sore muscle. At what point should I be concerned and have it looked at?

Jill: I need to see you!

Mark: Okay, I can come in this afternoon?
Or this morning I just have a radio show to tape at noon

Tue, Apr 20, 9:55 AM
Jill: 4:15 pm work?

Mark – Yep! See you then! Thanks again

He followed up the texts with a photo of himself showing how it is going now as he is beating the cancer with the help of chemo.

Hopefully, in a blink, he will be cancer-free and back on the road again with Blink-182. Especially now that Travis Barker is flying again.

Back in June, Mark Hoppus revealed that he has been battling diffuse large B-cell lymphoma stage IV-A. Last week, he said he was going to get scans that would determine whether he would live or die. Today, he shared with us the results, and he is winning the fight against the blood cancer.

“Scans indicate that the chemo is working! I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news.

“I’m so grateful and confused and also sick from last week’s chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer.

“Just gonna keep fighting…”

Hopefully, the next round of chemo will leave the Blink-182 bassist cancer-free. We need to keep him alive so that he can keep giving us great music. After all, he wrote the band’s best tunes like Adam’s Song.

Mark Hoppus normally posts funny things on his social media. However, today, he got serious with his fans.

“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,” he wrote. “Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all.”

Hopefully, the Blink-182 bassist will be cancer-free soon and back on the road with the band. So today, take some time and pray he gets through this. All the small things we can do with prayer can help someone like him.


Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus’ epitaph is spot on!

When you think who are the members of Blink-182, you know they are Travis Barker, Tom DeLonge and that other guy. That other guy knows he is not as famous as his bandmates.

That’s because Mark Hoppus tweeted, “If I ever die I hope people think back to me and say ‘Was he the Sum 41 dude? No, not him. The bassist. Wait. Am I thinking of Fall Out The Disco? Did they sing What’s My Name Again? No, that was Green Day. Shit.’” They probably are already saying that!

Joking, I love Blink and know all of their names. And not just because I almost got fired from a job because I introduced them to someone who was I not supposed to introduce them to. All the small things to lose a job over.


Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus bitten by a shark!

Mark Hoppus Tweeted this picture of his shocked reaction when a shark bit down him. I bet out of all the small things to attack him, a baby shark was towards the bottom of his list. Oh well, at least we got this cute picture out of the brutal attack.
