Mark Hoppus Says He’s Beating The Cancer And It’s Just A Matter Of Time
In a Q&A session during one of his Twitch streams, Blink-128’s Mark Hoppus has shared an update on his health status while being determined that he is going to win his fight against cancer which is just a matter of time.
As you may recall, Mark Hoppus has announced that he was diagnosed with cancer back on June 23. Moreover, he recently revealed that he will undergo a test that is going to reveal if he is going to live or not. He stated in a live stream on his Twitch channel that the test will decide if his chemotherapy is working and he feels much better after the sessions he took. However, Hoppus also revealed that he still has at least three rounds to go, and updated his fans on how he feels after chemo sessions.
In a recent one of his Twitch streams, Hoppus has updated his fans about the state he was in, saying he was diagnosed with 4-A diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, the same type of cancer his mother has battled and eventually beat in the past. It is known that this type of lymphoma targets white blood cells and alters the body’s immune system’s ability to fight infections. He stated that considering all, he is not able to leave his house since his risk of getting sick is more during the pandemic. Staying optimistic, Hoppus then added he is going to beat this cancer in a matter of time.
Hoppus said during his Twitch stream that:
“My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it’s entered four different parts of my body. I don’t know how exactly they determine the four-part of it, but it’s entered enough parts of my body that I’m Stage 4, which I think is the highest that it goes. So, I’m Stage 4-A.”
Talking about his mother, he said:
“I’ve been able to talk with her and bond with her quite a bit. Oddly enough, we have the exact same form of cancer that she had. And she beat it. Twice for breast cancer and one for the same cancer that I have.”
He then added:
“My white cell count is so low after the chemo that I can’t get sick, and I have to vigilantly take my temperature and make sure I don’t have a fever. If I have a fever, I have to call my doctor and it’s a whole thing.
We’re beating this cancer. It’s just a matter of time.”
