Singer and guitarist from the American rock band Blink-182, Mark Hobbs (49), claims to have cancer. The 49-year-old musician wrote on Instagram on Wednesday that he has been undergoing chemotherapy for three months.
It was horrible and he was scared, but he was “blessed by wonderful doctors, families and friends” helping him get through the disease. He did not give any information about the type of cancer.
“Cancer cure please”
The musician also posted a photo of himself, which appears to show him during a chemotherapy session. “Yes hello. Cancer treatment please »can be read in the photo. Hoppus still has months of treatment. But I am trying to stay positive and optimistic,” the musician wrote. He couldn’t wait to be cancer-free and see his fans at a concert in the near future.
Blink-182 became world famous in 1999 with the song “All the Small Things” from the album “Enema of the State”. The punk band is still a hit today. Their latest album “Nine” was released in September 2019. In total, Blink-182, which has since been disbanded, has sold over 50 million albums. (sda/klm)
