Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 is out of cancer, and he has been declared cancer-free by his doctor.
The 49-year-old musician Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus was diagnosed with stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma earlier this year. Earlier this week, he announced the news on his social media accounts on Wednesday.
“Just saw my oncologist and I’m cancer-free!!” he wrote. “Thank you, God and universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support and kindness and love“
Hoppus carried on. “Still have to get scanned every six months and it’ll take me until the end of the year to get back to normal but today is an amazing day and I feel so blessed.”
“Can I get a W in the chat?” He went on to explain, referring to the term Twitch streamers use to announce a win.

The news flooded, and fans were happy and started to cheer him up on the Instagram posts, with actor Adam Devine writing, “Agghhhghh!!! YES!!! Thank God! ❤️❤️❤️ congrats buddy! Best feeling in the world. Enjoy it!!!!”
“🙌🙌🙌 CONGRATS BUDDY,” Simple Plan frontman Pierre Bouvier wrote, while OneRepublic singer Ryan Tedder commented, per Hoppus’ request, “WWWWWWWWWW.”
“F— yes!!!! I don’t even know you and this made MY day!!!” Samantha Ronson shared. “Awesome!!!”
Mark Hoppus was diagnosed with Large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), a type of cancer that affects white blood cells. It’s one of the most prevalent non-lymphoma Hodgkin’s subtypes. DLBCL is cancer that can cause tumours all over the body.
Hoppus first made his appearance with his cancer diagnosis in late June. He discussed more regarding the sickness during a Twitch Livestream the following same month, declaring at the time that he’s “beating this cancer.” He also stated the chemotherapy is curing his cancer.
In August, Mark Hoppus was done with the fifth round of chemotherapy, posting on Twitter that he was “grateful to not be going in” for any further therapies.
“Normally I’d be going in today. ‘Normally.’ Damn. Getting pumped full of poison every three weeks is my normal,” he posted on Twitter.
In the earlier of the month, Hoppus shared his head’s photo on Instagram and remarked about how his hair has been growing back but white.
“I feel like this is still the cancery peach fuzz hair and maybe my normal hair will start growing again?” he wrote in the caption. “It’s so strange to have hair growing back more on my head while my leg hair continues to fall out further and further down, now at the bottom of my shins.”
“I’ve been in chemotherapy for five months and TODAY the hair on my shins decides it’s time to peace out? Cancer is weird,” he added.
