Mark Hoppus opens up about cancer diagnosis
Blink 182 star Mark Hoppus shocked us all recently by announcing he was undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. Now, he’s been speaking about his health on Twitch, and Absolute Radio have pulled some quotes from the VOD about how he’s doing:
“How am I feeling today? I feel much better than yesterday,” Hoppus said. “Yesterday was hellish for me and I woke up today feeling better – 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.”
“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 leaning up against an electric fence like I did the rest, the past couple of rounds.”
Indeed he “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.”
Hopefully fully recovered soon.
