Blink-182 icon Mark Hoppus will take a cancer test this week that will determine if he lives or dies from cancer.
Hoppus wrote on his socials, “”Apologies if I’m oversharing but it’s so surreal to think that this week I’ll take a test that may very well determine if I live or die.
“Thanks to everyone for the positive thoughts and encouragement. I read all your replies and it means the world to me. Thank you.
“I’m going to beat this through chemotherapy or through bone marrow transplants, but either way I’m determined to kick cancer’s ass directly in the nuts. Love to you all. Let’s. Heckin. Go.”
markjack82 posted on Reddit, “From the images he posted looks like a lymphoma, so it depends a lot of which subtype of lymphoma it is and we can only have the right answer with the tests. But generally, it’s not the worst type of cancer and most of them can be controlled with chemo… Let’s just hope and pray he can beat it 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻”
Niijima-San said, “this breaks my heart, never met Mark but been a fan for 20+ years, he was a large part of the soundtrack to my youth in suburbia and is a personal hero of mine. Mark seems like such a great dude and has touched so many people’s lives but this does not sound great and it really breaks my fucking heart.”
