“For the past three months, I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer,” Hoppus stated in his Instagram story. “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. Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all.”

“Mark is my brother and I love and support him,” blink-182 drummer Travis Barker told E! News. 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.”

“I too, have been aware of [Mark Hoppus]’s cancer diagnosis for awhile now,” former blink-182 guitarist and singer Tom DeLonge stated on Twitter. “And to add to his own words that he used today, I would also like to say that he is strong, and a super-human who is pushing through this difficult obstacle with a wide-open heart.”

blink-182 recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of their seminal album, Take Off Your Pants and Jacket.
