“Scans indicate that the chemo is working! I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news," the blink-182 bandleader wrote on Twitter. "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.”
“Oddly enough, I have the exact same form of cancer that she had, and she beat it so I’ve been able to talk with her and bond with her quite a bit," he said during a livestream Q&A, before announcing the specific type.
“My classification is Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma Stage IV-A, which means as I understand it, it’s entered four parts of my body,” he explained. “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 IV, which I think is the highest that it goes. So, I’m Stage IV-A.”
