He also added that his mother previously beat the exact same” type of cancer that he has, as well as breast cancer twice.

I’ve been able to talk with her and bond with her quite a bit,” Mark said. Oddly enough, we have the exact same form of cancer that she had. And she beat it – twice for breast cancer and one for the same cancer that I have.”

Blink-182's Mark Hoppus - The Chemo is Working

Loudwire 20 July, 2021 - 04:11pm

Mark Hoppus’ chemotherapy is working, according to a new social media post from the blink-182 musician.

The music world has huddled around Mark Hoppus ever since he announced his cancer diagnosis last month. In the week since, Hoppus revealed he’s suffering from Stage 4-A Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which the singer/bassist’s mother has previously battled and beat.

In a Twitch stream last week, Hoppus said he’d soon be receiving an update on whether chemotherapy was working for him or not. "The test is to find out if my chemotherapy is working at all. And if it is, then I go back for at least three more rounds,” he shared. “Ideally, I go in tomorrow and they say, 'Congratulations! Your chemotherapy has worked and you are all done, and you'll never have to think about this cancer again for the rest of your life.' I hope."

"If I go in tomorrow and they're like, 'It's kinda working, we think it's working,' we'll see. Then I'll still do three more rounds, I think. And if they say, 'Well it's really not working like we'd hoped,' then I have to go and talk about other options. Which I guess means a bone marrow transplant."

Today (July 19), Hoppus shared some great news:

“Scans indicate that the chemo is working! I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news. I’m so grateful and confused and also sick from last week’s chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer. Just gotta keep fighting…”

Fans and musicians have continued sending Mark Hoppus their best wishes, as have blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and classic blink guitarist / vocalist Tom DeLonge.

Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Says He Received the “Best Possible News” in Fight Against Stage 4 Cancer

Yahoo Entertainment 20 July, 2021 - 04:11pm

The Blink-182 singer, who recently revealed he has stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, gave fans an optimistic health update on Monday, July 19.

"Scans indicate that the chemo is working!" he tweeted. "I still have months of treatment ahead, but it's the best possible news."

Mark, 49, shared, "I'm so grateful and confused and also sick from last week's chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer."

"Just gonna keep fighting…" added the musician, who shares 18-year-old Jack Hoppus with his wife of 20 years, Skye Everly. He later joked that it should be "Chemotherapy Gary" in place of their song title "Dysentery Gary."

Last week, Mark told his followers his cancer is not bone-related but rather blood-related, saying, "My blood's trying to kill me... It's entered four different parts of my body."

He was diagnosed in April and has recently been undergoing chemotherapy. "The side effect of the chemotherapy is you get something called 'chemo brain'...I forget people's names, song titles, anything," he said. "People will be talking to me, and then five minutes later I'll ask them a question and they're like, I just told you that five minutes ago."

Mark has been looking forward to healthier days ahead in his positive social media posting, writing in June, "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."

His bandmate Travis Barker is certainly sending him love, telling E! News in a statement, "Mark is my brother and I love and support him. I will be with him every step of the way on stage and off and can't wait for us to play together again soon."

In June, Blink-182's Mark Hoppus revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer, saying he had been going through chemotherapy for three months. He didn’t offer very many more details, but he did make it clear that he was moving forward with a positive attitude about his future and was hopeful about his treatment. Recently, Hoppus offered an update on how he’s been doing on a Twitch stream (via The Hollywood Reporter), explaining that his specific diagnosis is “diffuse large B-cell lymphoma sta

Blink-182's Mark Hoppus is responding well to his cancer treatment

hotpress.com 20 July, 2021 - 04:11pm

Mark Hoppus has received the "best possible news" that his cancer treatment appears to be working.

The Blink 182 singer and bassist publicly revealed last month that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

He shared another update yesterday via Twitter, announcing his chemotherapy so far looked to be a success.

He tweeted: "Scans indicate that the chemo is working! I still have months of treatment ahead, but it's the best possible news.

"I'm so grateful and confused and also sick from last week's chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer.

— ϻⓇ Ƥย (@markhoppus) July 19, 2021

Hoppus revealed his diagnosis on Twitter in June, telling fans he had been diagnosed in April and has been receiving chemotherapy since.

"For the past three months I've been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer. It sucks and I'm scared," he tweeted.

"At the same time I'm blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this," the 49-year-old added. "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 pop-punk rocker formed Blink-182 in Southern California back in 1992, later spawning hits 'What's My Age Again?', 'I Miss You', and All The Small Things'.

Blink-182's radio-friendly brand of pop punk won them fans around the world throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, released in 2001, became one of the biggest albums of the decade, with the band selling more than 50 million records in total.

MBlink-182’s Mark Hoppus Shares Update Amid Cancer Treatment: 'The Chemo Is Working!'

Entertainment Tonight 20 July, 2021 - 04:11pm

"Scans indicate that the chemo is working!" Hoppus shared on Twitter. "I still have months of treatments ahead, but it's the best possible news."

Though he's feeling sick from his last round of treatment, the musician said he's grateful that medicine is working to destroy the cancer.

"I'm grateful and confused and also sick from last week's chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer. Just gonna keep fighting," he continued.

In an online Q&A with Chilean Blink fans earlier this month, the musician discussed his diagnosis, which he said was diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, the same blood-related cancer his mother beat.

"My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it's entered four different parts of my body," Hoppus explained during the livestream. "I don't know how exactly they determine the four-part of it, but it's entered enough parts of my body that I'm Stage 4, which I think is the highest that it goes. So, I'm Stage 4-A."

Hoppus first revealed his cancer diagnosis in a statement posted to social media last month, sharing, "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."

As he's been battling his cancer, Hoppus says his level of activity and ability can vary day by day.

"On good days, I go do stuff," said Hoppus, explaining that the walk he went for that day marked the first time he'd left his house "in like five days." He added that the latest round of chemotherapy hasn't been quite as hard to deal with as previous rounds.

"This round of chemo, I wasn't totally stuck on the couch, miserable," he said. "I've actually watched movies and walked around and cleaned the house and hung out with my dogs."

This is a marked improvement over previous experiences, when chemotherapy left him feeling like "a poisoned electrified zombie leaning up against an electric fence."

Despite feeling better, the treatment and the cancer itself have left him immunocompromised and he cannot go out in public for the sake of his health.

"I wanted to go to the Dodgers game last night, [but] I can't. I want to go hang out with friends and go to a restaurant. I can't," he said. "My white blood cell count is way too low for me to go out so I am stuck trying to get better. [But] that's alright, I'll take it."

Hoppus went public with his cancer diagnosis in late June. During a Twitch livestream earlier in July, the "What's My Age Again?" singer told fans that he was diagnosed in April and has since been undergoing chemotherapy treatments.

"My blood's trying to kill me," he said in a recording captured by the YouTube account Blink-182 Chile.

Large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is a type of cancer that occurs in white blood cells and can form tumors throughout the body, according to the Mayo Clinic. It is one of the most common subtypes of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

At the time of the livestream, Hoppus said he was one day away from a medical appointment to see if chemotherapy was working.

"If it is, I go back for at least three more rounds," he said. "Ideally, I go in tomorrow and they say, 'Congratulations, your chemotherapy has worked and you're all done and you'll never have to think about this cancer again for the rest of your life.'"

"We're beating this cancer," Hoppus added. "It's just a matter of time."

Since his diagnosis, Hoppus has been leaning on his mother, a three-time cancer survivor.

"Oddly enough, we have the exact form of cancer," he said during the livestream. "And she beat it, so I've been able to talk to her and bond with her quite a bit."

While breakthrough infections aren’t common, vaccinated people should still watch for these possible symptoms.

Adam Joseph, a meteorologist for ABC station WPVI, said his 6-year-old son Jacob and 5-year-old daughter Hannah tested positive for COVID-19 after having contact with a relative who was not vaccinated against the virus. Joseph said the relative tested negative for COVID-19 prior to the visit with his family, but later tested positive for the virus. In addition to his children, their nanny also contracted COVID-19, according to Joseph.
