Hoppus' announcement came two months after the rocker revealed he underwent three months of chemotherapy following his Stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma diagnosis earlier this year.
"The cancer isn't bone-related, it's blood-related. My blood's trying to kill me," he said in an Instagram Q&A in July. "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."
