Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Says His Cancer Announcement Was A ‘Brain Fog’ Accident
When Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus announced this summer that he had cancer, he actually didn’t mean to share the news with everyone. He thought he was sending the message to a few close friends. Instead, it was 1.2 million of his Instagram followers.
He didn’t realize what he had done, until he started getting messages asking what was going on? He was in the middle of a chemo session when it happened.
In an interview with GQ he said, "Chemo is like being on the worst international, overnight flight where you can't sleep or get comfortable. And the brain fog is so bad. The chemo brain is just heartbreaking to me because I can feel myself diminished mentally right now."
After 4 months of treatment for stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, the 49 year old recently announced he is cancer-free.
