Travis Barker Shares Support for 'Brother' Mark Hoppus amid Cancer Diagnosis: 'Love U'

·2-min read

Travis Barker is sending love to his friend Mark Hoppus.

The Blink-182 drummer, 45, voiced his support for the band's bass guitarist and singer, 49, who revealed Wednesday that he has been diagnosed with cancer and begun chemotherapy.

"Mark is my brother and I love and support him. I will be with him every step of the way on stage and off and can't wait for us to play together again soon," Barker told E! News.

The drummer also gave a shoutout to Hoppus on his Instagram Story Wednesday night, posting a throwback photo of himself giving the singer a hug and kiss on the cheek. Meanwhile, the Blink-182 frontman jokingly grimaced at the camera.

"Love u," Barker wrote below the photo of the two rockers with a black heart emoji.

Former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge also shared well-wishes for his former bandmate following Hoppus' announcement.

"I too, have been aware of @markhoppus's cancer diagnosis for awhile now," tweeted DeLonge, who left the group in 2015. "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."

"#WeHaveHisBack," he added.
