Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus is updating fans on his battle with cancer.

Hoppus explained on Twitch last night that despite being scared he’s “trying to remain hopeful and positive” for the future.

He also took questions from fans and when asked about his treatment he said:

“On good days, I go do stuff. I went on a walk outside today and it was the first time I’d left my house in like five days pretty much. But this round of chemo I wasn’t totally stuck on the couch, miserable. I’ve actually watched movies and walked around and cleaned the house and hung out with my dogs. I didn’t just feel like a poisoned electrified zombie leaning up against an electric fence like I did the rest, the past couple of rounds.”

Hoppus also says he can’t go out explaining, “I can’t go anywhere right now. I wanted to go to the Dodgers last night. I can’t. I want to go hang out with friends and go to a restaurant. I can’t. My white blood cell count is way too low for me to go out so I am stuck trying to get better. That’s alright, I’ll take it.”
