Mark Hoppus announces cancer diagnosis

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. I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain positive. Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all.”
