someone should just tell mark that ry collected money from fans to bootleg DED on vinyl. then, he'll be back in no time. 

That's the only reason I own a DED vinyl because blink only sold theirs for a few minutes (that I was asleep during). So I'm happy I at least have my fake version lol.

Another example of blink being shitty with stupid limited stock merch though. I spent 7 years waiting and hoping they would release DED on vinyl and when they finally did I missed it because they decided it had to be a stupid limited thing.

And that's also why I'm happy for this board because I can complain about how fucking dumb that is without feeling bad about it haha

Is the DED vinyl a big thing? I have the red one. It showed up with a pretty big crease in the corner and that annoyed me so I stashed it away somewhere so it wouldn’t trigger me

I don’t know if it’s a big thing, I’m just annoyed that they made so few of them that I didn’t even have a chance to try to get one after I had been waiting years for blink to release it.

So based on Mark’s last tweet, he has some kind of bone marrow cancer. Said his test this week could determine whether he lives or dies. My hunch from the start was that this was not good. This seems very bad.

Lymphoma is what it sounds like.

Isn’t there two types of Lymphoma and one is very treatable?

There are quite a few different types, some being slow growing and others being super aggressive.

Mark just confirmed on his stream that it isn't bone related, it's blood related regarding his cancer. 

It’s pretty clearly Hodgkin’s lymphoma. One type you usually end up totally fine after chemo and another is very deadly. The way he’s talking about it though seems like they don’t fully know idk? Also seems like it’s regional, which wouldn’t be stage 4 which is hopeful

This is from the general discussion thread.

Mark said on stream he has Stage 4 Diffuse large B cell lymphoma and his test is tomorrow to see if he has to either do a final 3 rounds of chemo if it worked or possibly try bone marrow transplants if things haven’t gotten better.

He said his mom had that cancer as well and beat it (as well as breast cancer) so here’s to kicking it’s ass again in the family 💪

That’s encouraging that his mom had it and beat it.

From a quick Google it seems like a curable cancer and not one of the ones where you are totally fucked. But stage 4? That’s brutal

just some insight into the type of lymphoma Mark appears to have based on a Reddit comment:

 I just underwent treatment for a rare lymphoma. I’m now at 7 months remission.

Stage 4: means it has spread to other parts of the body and not isolated to just one quadrant. My guess is he has it in his lower body somewhere as well, possibly his bone marrow.

A: means he didn’t really show additional signs like night sweats, fatigue, or weight loss, making it harder to identify and diagnose.

Median age of his diagnosis is ~70

Given he is younger, he probably has around a 60-70+% survival rate of 5+ years. They rate survival at “5 years” because other factors aside from the cancer diagnosis could lead to death and “skew” the #s, don’t be afraid of the OS range.

I bet the test he’s waiting on is a bone marrow biopsy. Stage 4, there’s a chance it has spread to his marrow…

Stay strong Mark.

Edit: Some additional context I made further in the thread.

Mark has the potential to be “cured” and live cancer free, yes. He has a 60-70+% chance of reaching remission (from this cancer) and living a long life.

Going through chemo and treatment, there is a high chance of developing other cancers down the line because chemotherapy causes damage to the organs. Chemo itself can lead to cancer, but when you’re faced with the decision of dying from cancer NOW, or taking chemotherapy and getting another cancer later, the choice is to do the chemotherapy.

Also statistically: the longer you live the more likely you will develop cancer in your life. It’s kind of like saying, “the more you drive a car, the more likely you’ll be in a car accident.”

So that’s why the OS (overall survival) # is within a 5 year period. They only really count for those 5 years. After 5 years, if you get cancer, that’s more or less a “new” diagnosis
