Blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus says he is ‘cancer free’

Blink-182 vocalist and bassist Mark Hoppus announced Wednesday that he is “cancer free,” six months after beginning chemotherapy.

“Just saw my oncologist and I’m cancer free!!” Hoppus said on Instagram and Twitter. “Thank you God and universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support and kindness and love.”

Hoppus said he will continue to get scanned biannually.

The bassist-vocalist has been public about his cancer diagnosis and treatment.

He announced in June that he had been undergoing chemotherapy for three months. “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,” he wrote at the time.

Just last week, Hoppus shared his discomfort with chemotherapy treatment in a tweet. “Damn,” he wrote. “Getting pumped full of poison every three weeks is my normal.”

The news of Hoppus’ announcement on Wednesday brought a flood of congratulations on social media.

“Just the best,” singer-songwriter John Mayer wrote in the comments of Hoppus’ Instagram post.

One Republic lead vocalist Ryan Tedder wrote “WWWWWWWWWW” in response to Hoppus’ request for “a W in the chat”

Actor Adam Devine, who spoke publicly about his father’s battle with cancer, wrote “YES!!! Thank God!”
