Blink-182 dominated the music charts for a time as punk music took over the mainstream. Now Mark Hoppus has announced that he is battling cancer at the age of 49-years-old.

The famous rocker revealed on Wednesday that he is battling cancer. This was done through a social media post on Instagram. He did so in a humorous way, as he is known to do.

“Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please,” Hoppus captioned a photo of himself sitting in a chair. It appears that he was undergoing chemotherapy as well, a treatment known for battling cancer.

The Bink-182 frontman then expanded on this situation via a post on Twitter. He sent out a text graphic to reveal that he has been going through chemo for the past three months, battling cancer. He did not reveal exactly which kind of cancer he is battling, but we are hoping for the best.

“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 hopefully near future. Love to you all.”

The California native is known for his rock songs like All The Small Things, Adam’s Song, and I Miss You. Blink-182’s catalog of music is immense and the world is sending out good vibes to this famous rocker.

Best wishes to Mark Hoppus as he battles cancer from everyone at Thirsty!
