On June 23, the Blink-182 member opened up on social media about the diagnosis and how he’s remaining “hopeful and positive” for a cancer-free future.
“For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer,” Hoppus wrote. “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.”
The following week, Hoppus dropped into a game of Blinko on Twitch to play with fans and answer some questions about his health.
“How am I feeling today? I feel much better than yesterday,” he said near the top of the nearly 45-minute session of online bingo. “Yesterday was hellish for me and 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.”
