Mark Hoppus Has Finished His Chemo Treatments
His former Blink-182 bandmate Tom DeLonge shared the news on Instagram
Published Sep 03, 2021It's a good day for good news — and we're overdue for some at this point, right? Mark Hoppus has reportedly finished his chemotherapy treatments, according to an Instagram post shared by his former Blink-182 bandmate and renowned alien-hunter Tom DeLonge.
Yesterday (September 2), DeLonge posted a screenshot of a text conversation with Hoppus where he asks, "No more treatments right?" to which Hoppus answers that there are "No more planned."
"Doctor said I can take my port out," the bassist continued, "I think because he thinks the chemo did the trick and I'm done but also if the chemo didn't work[,] we do a different treatment entirely?"
To celebrate this victory, DeLonge naturally had some "modest advice" for his friend, which we needn't repeat. Let's keep this wholesome.

Hoppus first made his cancer diagnosis public back in June. Since then, he's offered his fans many vulnerable updates as he's undergone treatment, including revealing the type of cancer he's facing and sharing July's "best possible news" that recent scans indicated that the chemo was working.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that M. Night Shyamalan almost directed a Blink-182 music video in the early 2000s. In less of a twist, DeLonge recently directed an Angles & Airwaves video full of TikTok dances.
