Blink-182 singer and bassist Mark Hoppus made a new live stream on his verified Twitch account this week to inform his fanbase about the current status of his chemotherapy.
As you may remember, later last month, the founding member of Blink-182 made an announcement on his official Instagram Stories to announce that he’s been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer for the past three months.
While Hoppus stated that he’s trying to remain hopeful and positive, waiting to be cancer-free as soon as possible, he also shared his hope to see his fanbase at a concert in the near future. Today, he made yet another live stream on his Twitch channel to share an update about the current status of his chemotherapy sessions.
The musician stated that despite being cancer and scared is really sucks, he’s getting better and better every single day.
Here is what he said:
“I have cancer. It sucks and I’m scared, but at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to help get me through this. feel much better than yesterday. Yesterday was hellish for me. And I woke up today feeling better, and I went for a walk, and I had a decent breakfast, and I haven’t felt like I was going to throw up today. So we’ll take it as a win.”
Hoppus continued saying:
“Is the chemo going OK? It’s going good, I hope. I mean, it’s making me sick.
I will say though, that this round of chemo I feel better than I have before. The only thing is that this round I’ve been more nauseous, which I don’t like. 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 leaned up against an electric fence like I did the past couple of rounds…
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.”
