Luke Menard from Chapter 6 has cancer

I found this on an American Idol board, where I post.
____________________________________________
Prayer Needed

Dear Friends,
I am urgently asking you to please join me in prayer for my friend Luke Menard. He is a singer in a group called Chapter 6 and they are great friends of mine. Most importantly he is a child of God and he knows the Lord.

Luke has just been diagnosed with an inoperable cancer and I'm told that he is in stage 2.


Please add him to your prayer list and just lift him up to the Lord.

I know we serve a faithful God and that there is nothing he can't do!

Thank you for your time.

If you'd like to send Luke some encouragement, you can do so at www.myspace.com/chaptersix or you can email him at luke@chapter6.com

We all need each other and none of us are in anything alone. Let's all make our prayer requests known to each other.

God Bless and keep you all and I pray that if you don't know the Lord Jesus that you seek him while he may be found. Every day is a new day to get it right.


Much Love

Chinua Hawk

(FROM CBS) - Former American Idol contestant Luke Menard has been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, according to a rep for the singer's a capella group Chapter 6. News of the 29-year-old's illness was first reported by VoteForTheWorst.com. The Leukemia & Lymphona Society website says that Hodgkin Lymphoma may be treated with radiation therapy or a combination of drugs and describes it as having ''a high cure rate.'' Menard made it to the Top 16 on this season of Idol before being voted off in March.
This is so sad,...so young.
Many prayers for his complete recovery.

When the Idol Finalists were on Larry King Friday night, David Cook gave a shout out to Luke.
He mentioned that Luke was in the Top 16.
He spoke about Luke's Medical condition and the other Finalists had encouraging words for him.

Larry King will also air another hour with the AI Finalist this Monday.

I don't remember him, but hope he kicks it. Prayers for Luke from TEXAS.

From People


http://tvwatch.people.com/2008/05/22...d-with-cancer/

American Idol contestant Luke Menard has been diagnosed with lymphoma, a relative of the singer confirms to PEOPLE.

Menard, 29, thought he had walking pneumonia when he first sought medical treatment for a persistent cough. After doctors ran several tests, they found a mass behind his heart and removed a node from under his left collarbone.

According to the relative, a biopsy showed the mass to be a symptom of Stage Two Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system.

While in Los Angeles, Menard, who frequently visited Idol to watch the show since being voted off on March 6, received an outpouring of support from his castmates. David Cook and Carly Smithson visited him at the hospital, while he received encouraging emails from other finalists. “That really meant a lot to him,” the relative says, adding that he and Cook are close.

Now back in his hometown of Crawfordsville, Ind., with his wife Lara, Menard is in treatment for the disease. “He is surrounded by his family,” the relative says. “They want to help him beat this and move on.”

His odds are good: with treatment, the survival rate is about 95 percent.
