Carman Diagnosed With Incurable Cancer

Some sad news for Christian music fans: In a recent Facebook post, iconic singer Carman has announced that doctors have told him he may have no more than four years to live after being diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer:

One week ago I was diagnosed with myeloma cancer. It is incurable and I’ve been given a 3-4 year window of time. Tomorrow I go in for my first bone biopsy and the process will start. I used to go to movies in the afternoon, now I go see doctors …. I write these things for a few reasons. First, I want to put an end to all the rumors. Second, I ask for your prayers. And [third], I want you all to know that I will continue to minister and win souls until I can’t do it any longer. My life has always been about ministry. I have a call of God to touch lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ and that’s what I will do until the Lord calls me home.”

In a career that has spanned more than three decades, the 57-year-old performer, whose real name is Carman Licciardello, has sold more than 10 million albums. According to the Facebook post, he plans on continuing to tour in support of his latest release, Anthems of a Champion
