Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus recently posted an Instagram story noting that he is cancer free for two years and he is grateful.
One of the fans wrote on Reddit:
“We’re all grateful for that”
A second fan wrote;
“Love this man”
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when mark fu**ed up his close friends story. I’ve been fairly antagonistic toward skiba era fans in this sub but none of that matters when it comes down to someone getting hurt. I will never love songs like I love Wendy clear and apple shampoo, and im so glad mark kicked cancers ass. He is blink-182 heart and soul. Rock on!!!!”
Meanwhile, Travis Barker took to his Twitter account and posted the following:
“Also last week I had covid, an episode of trigeminal neuralgia, and a root canal. Which means I can pretty much handle anything god throws at me.”
After revealing that he had tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 22, the Blink-182 drummer, 47, shared a couple of updates regarding his health and well-being on X (formerly known as Twitter).
On Friday, Barker wrote a post on X where he revealed that as well as having had COVID last week, he also had “an episode of trigeminal neuralgia, and a root canal. Which means I can pretty much handle anything god throws at me.”
According to the Mayo Clinic, trigeminal neuralgia is “a condition that causes painful sensations similar to an electric shock on one side of the face.”
Blink-182’s next performance is scheduled to take place on Oct. 2 at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal, per the band’s website. The “All the Small Things” rockers’ upcoming album is set to be released on Oct. 20, and they released a new single, “One More Time,” earlier this month.
