“I have had cancer chemotherapy for the past three months,” the post said. I have cancer. It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time, I’ve been blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends who can get through this with me.

In addition to his well-known musical ventures, Hoppus also moderates the show After the school radio at Apple Music, where he recently interviewed guests like Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and CHVRCHES and discussed (who does not introduce him) the track “Featuring Mark Hoppus” with the band Hot Mulligans.
