Carman’s Cancer Returned, but God Answered His Prayers for a Cancer-Free Birthday

by | Jan 20, 2020 | Prayer & Devotion

Christian music artist Carman Licciardello says God answered his prayers for a cancer-free birthday yesterday.

Earlier this month, the singer told his Facebook followers that his cancer from 2014 had returned and asked for urgent prayer.

“A year ago January, the oncologist told me my Myeloma markers were spiking,” he wrote. “Meaning, that In all this time I had no signs of cancer and in complete remission, but now the tests tell us 17% of the cancer is back. 9 years reduced to 6 years.”

As a result, Licciardello says, he had to start taking more advanced medicine starting in July and was getting painful chemo shots in his stomach every Tuesday. When they added a steroid, he gained 20 pounds of water weight. To add to all this, he underwent surgery on his hip for a bone biopsy on Tuesday, Jan. 14.

“I can’t do it without your prayers and support,” he said. “Sunday January 19th is my birthday and what I really want is a cancer free body.”

It seems God answered that prayer. In a new Facebook post on Jan. 18, Licciardello wrote that the surgeries and medical treatment did its work and brought the cancer below where it was in 2014.

He wrote:

“I ASKED GOD FOR A CANCER FREE BIRTHDAY ON SUNDAY THE 19TH AND GOT IT !

“When we discovered the cancer from 2014 had returned 17% and growing, Dr. Van Rhee put me on a new aggressive combination of treatments in July for 7 months. Then tested me again last week with MRI’s, P.E.T. SCANS, BONE BIOPSY’s and BLOOD TESTS. The cancer was NOW below the levels it was when I first left 9 months of chemotherapy in 2014. I’ll have to continue treatment indefinitely through a series of pills I take everyday. Mine is a constant daily battle. But as long as I stay away from ‘Stress’ and get plenty of ‘Sleep’ I’ll always feel great and not sluggish or lethargic. I still can be active and workout. Bottom line is I asked God for a “cancer free” birthday and today it’s now below the ‘0’ mark.”

But Licciardello isn’t just praising God. He’s also telling the devil to back off.

“One Last thing. I’m going back on tour this month and have a message for the Devil: I’ve seen the storm. I faced the storm. I weathered the storm. now I am the storm.”

Keep praying as Licciardello continues his healing journey. {eoa}
