Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus on Cancer Diagnosis: ‘I’m Feeling better Today than Yesterday’

Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus is taking his fight against cancer one day at a time.

The singer-bassist on Wednesday gave his Twitch followers an update on his condition, writing, “I feel much better than yesterday. Yesterday was hellish for me. I woke up feeling better.
I went out for a walk, and I had a decent breakfast today and I haven’t felt like I was going to throw up today, so we’ll take it as a win.”

The update comes one week after the 49-year-old revealed he’s undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. At the time, he said, “It sucks and I’m scared.”

Do you think you’ll see a cure for cancer in your lifetime?
