Mark Hoppus Has Finished His Chemotherapy Treatment, According To Tom DeLonge

Tom DeLonge, a former member of Blink-182, revealed some good news regarding his former bandmate Mark Hoppus, claiming that he is no longer undergoing chemotherapy.

Hoppus had been having therapy for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, an aggressive form of non-lymphoma, Hodgkin’s since he was diagnosed with the disease at the age of 49.

DeLonge posted a screenshot from a text message exchange between him and Hoppus on Instagram. When DeLonge inquired whether he was through with therapy, the bassist said he didn’t have anything else planned.

Hoppus wrote, “Doctor said I can take my port out.” “I suppose because he believes the chemo worked and I’m done, but what if the chemo didn’t work and we have to try something else?”

The Angels & Airwaves singer was ecstatic at the news, telling Hoppus, “That’s fantastic news. It’s time to start LIVING.” He also sent some amusing suggestions on how to commemorate the end of treatment.

“I just wanted to be a good friend to @markhoppus and give him some modest advice on what he should do next now that his Chemo treatments have ceased,” DeLonge captioned the post, “and it appears like they may have worked beautifully.”

DeLonge claimed late last month that Hoppus was “nearly finished with his therapy” and in the “home stretch.”

Hoppus made a remark regarding his hair around the same time: “I’m attempting to regrow some hair. Awww. What a sad little head. Fighter, keep your chin up.”
