    blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus has announced on Twitter that he's currently being treated for cancer.

    He says he's been undergoing chemotherapy, is remaining hopeful that the treatment will be a success, and he'll be able to keep playing shows going forward - and we hope so too.

    The 49-year-old wrote, “For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and friends to get me through this."

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

    Friends and fans responded to Mark's tweet wishing him well, including All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat, actor B.J Novak, Of Mice And Men's Aaron Pauley, members of State Champs, Good Charlotte, A Day To Remember, Best Coast and many more.
