Christian music artist Carman Licciardello, known by his stage name “Carman,” has been diagnosed with cancer.
The musician and evangelist wrote on his Facebook page Thursday morning:
“I have delayed writing this but those of you I call friends and supporters, who have prayed for me and this ministry need to know about this new battle that lies ahead. One week ago I was diagnosed with myeloma cancer. It is incurable and I’ve been given a 3- to 4-year window of time.”
Often described as part evangelist, part Vegas showman, the 57-year-old’s concerts “are more like a rock-and-roll Billy Graham crusade than a Christian music event,” his website says.
Carman wrote that he will go in for his first bone biopsy and begin the process this week.
“I used to go to movies in the afternoon, now I go see doctors,” he said.
The singer listed three reasons for his post:
“First, I want to put an end to all the rumors. Second, I ask for your prayers. And 3rd, 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,” he explained. “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.”
He asked his Facebook followers not to fill his page with cancer treatment remedies, but encouraged them to come see him the next time he’s in their area.
