Mark Hoppus, bassist/songwriter for Blink-182 and one of the most revered and beloved figures among the alt/punk community, revealed in a social media post on Wednesday that he has been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer for a few months.

His full message:

For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer. It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this. I still have months of treatment ahead of me and but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive.

Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all.

Hoppus, 49, also added this image to his Instagram Story.

News of Hoppus’ announcement spread far and wide on social media, with many of his friends and peers in the music scene sending their well-wishes for his full recovery.

Among those that shared love was Tom DeLonge, Hoppus’ longtime band mate in Blink-182 (and who is currently focused on his own band, Angels & Airwaves).

I too, have been aware of @markhoppus’s cancer diagnosis for awhile now. And to add to his own words that he used today, I would also like to say that he is strong, and a super-human who is pushing through this difficult obstacle with a wide-open heart. Fisted hand#WeHaveHisBack
