Mexico City- Mark Hobbs, leader of the Blink-182 group, was diagnosed with cancer, through his social networks.
“For the past three months, I have been receiving chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer. It is an unpleasant disease and I feel scared, and at the same time I am fortunate to have wonderful doctors, families and friends who will help me overcome this.” Wrote.
“I still have months from treatment, but I’m trying to stay hopeful and optimistic. I can’t wait to be cancer-free and see you all at a concert in the near future. I love you all.”
