Some Thanksgiving perspective, thanks from Mark Hoppus of blink-182

A message of thanks on Turkey Day 2021 takes on a whole new meaning when it’s from Mark Hoppus of blink-182.

Mark is free and clear of the cancer he battled this year — so to go from Stage 4 to nothing, I would imagine he has nothing but gratitude. On Instagram, he gave a message of hope and perspective:

I have so much to be thankful for today. This photo is from June, halfway through chemo, no idea if it was working or not, relegated to the bathroom floor, retching. If I ever complain about something trivial or unimportant, please show me this photo to remind me of how bad things can be, and how truly blessed I am. I hope you all have an amazing day with friends and family. Happy Thanksgiving.”

Words for us all to keep in mind. — [eric]
