“Scans indicate that the chemo is working!” Hoppus tweeted. “I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news. I’m so grateful and confused and also sick from last week’s chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer. Just gonna keep fighting…”
“The cancer isn’t bone-related, it’s blood-related. My blood’s trying to kill me,” he said. “My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it’s entered four different parts of my body.”
“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 4, which I think is the highest that it goes. So, I’m Stage 4-A,” he added.
He also said he has the “exact same” type of cancer his mother beat years ago.
“For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer,” he tweeted last month. “I have cancer. 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. I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive.”
