  • Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus is updating fans on his battle with cancer.
  • Hoppus explained on Twitch last night that despite being scared he’s “trying to remain hopeful and positive” for the future.
  • He also took questions from fans and when asked about his treatment he said, “On good days, I go do stuff. I went on a walk outside today and it was the first time I’d left my house in like five days pretty much. But this round of chemo I wasn’t totally stuck on the couch, miserable. I’ve actually watched movies and walked around and cleaned the house and hung out with my dogs.  I didn’t just feel like a poisoned electrified zombie leaning up against an electric fence like I did the rest, the past couple of rounds.”
  • Hoppus also says he can’t go out explaining, “I can’t go anywhere right now. I wanted to go to the Dodgers last night.  I can’t. I want to go hang out with friends and go to a restaurant.  I can’t.  My white blood cell count is way too low for me to go out so I am stuck trying to get better. That’s alright, I’ll take it.”
