Last month, the What’s My Age Again? artist spoke about his health battle in a Twitch stream in which he explained to fans the type of cancer he’s dealing with.
‘My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma stage four-A, which means, as I understand it, it’s entered four different parts of my body,’ Hoppus said. ‘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 four, which I think is the highest that it goes.
‘So, I’m stage four-A. We’re beating this cancer – it’s just a matter of time.’
Hoppus, who was diagnosed with cancer this past April, initially publicly revealed his health battle in a June 23 tweet, saying, ‘It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this.’

Hoppus, who is father to son Jack Hoppus, 18, with wife Skye Everly, 48, chat with former bandmate Tom DeLonge on After School Radio, his Apple Music 1 program earlier this week, as they spoke about the band’s catalog.
Hoppus asked DeLonge, 45, which album was his favorite, to which DeLonge said, ‘That’s a really good question. God, there’s so many great things about all of them.
‘I really like, obviously the Untitled album in the sense of the exploration musically that we did there,’ DeLonge said. ‘But I also got to say, when we did [Enema Of The State], it was like, I knew that we were doing something in the moment that hasn’t been done before.’

He added: ‘But I also feel like, you go back to when you wrote Dammit I remember I felt I went through a college course on songwriting. I never really thought of a song as such a simple structure, and it really informed a lot of decisions made later.’

‘Mark is doing well!’ he said. ‘Cancer is disappearing! But, he still has more chemo to do. As tough as it is, IT IS working! Mark is a real life superhero.’
