Mark Hoppus gives an update on his cancer treatment.

BLINK-182’s Mark Hoppus has expressed his determination to overcome his cancer diagnosis.

Hoppus, who went public with his cancer diagnosis last month, posted the following message to his Twitter on Saturday (July 10): “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.”

The BLINK-182 singer and bassist broke the news of his cancer diagnosis on June 23 by posting a photo of himself in a doctor’s office surrounded by medical equipment along with the caption: “Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please.”

Hoppus later released the following statement: “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.

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

The 49-year-old Hoppus is BLINK-182’s sole remaining founding member.
