Mark Hoppus became the latest star to suffer from cancer.

This week, Mark Hoppus revealed to his fans the saddening news about his health.

On his Twitter account, Hoppus informed everyone that he has been receiving chemotherapy for the past three months.

“It sucks and I’m scared,” he captioned his post. “And at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this.”

The singer of Blink-182 added that he will be receiving the treatment for the next few months. He still showed positivity by expressing how excited he is to be cancer-free.

In another since-deleted post, he showed himself while receiving an IV. He wrote “Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please” in the caption.

After revealing the news, his fans immediately sent well wishes and assured him that he is not alone.

One fan said, “Prayers for him that he receives healing and that he gets a good relationship with God.”

Another wrote, “Cancer is treatable and beatable I had two different cancers and was told one was inoperable and incurable. Today three years later because of immunotherapy one cancer is gone and the other is almost gone. Don’t get scared get treated. The treatments are not as bad as you fear!”

Sending love to Hoppus

In response to this news, his bandmate Travis Barker also penned a heartwarming message to the singer.

In an exclusive statement to E! News, Barker expressed his support and love for the 49-year-old.

“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,” Barker wrote.

Carson Daly also did the same and wrote a lengthy message on Instagram.

It remains unknown what type of cancer he does have. Still, his fans continuously offered prayers until he recovers from the dreaded disease.

Before announcing his treatment, Hoppus previously expressed how much he misses doing live shows. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, he became one of the performers who turned off their lights for a moment.

In a November interview, he revealed that the quarantine stole something from people by letting them see each other but not being able to be with them physically. He then noted that there is something that happens during a show with people performing music and their fans watching them.
