In the midst of enjoying the success of their new album "Thrive," Casting Crowns' lead singer Mark Hall has revealed that he is going for surgery. This month, he is going to have one of his kidneys reoved. This is because doctors have discovered a "solid mass" in it which they are 90 percent sure is cancer.
"Hey Casting Crowns Family, I would appreciate your prayers," he began in a note posted to the band's website and social media accounts.
"Doctors found a solid mass in my right kidney about a week ago. They are 90% sure it's cancer and they are going to remove the entire kidney next Wednesday, March 11th. They believe the cancer is contained in the kidney, which is also a great hope. They will know more once it is out and Pathology can see it," he continued.
"I'll be in recovery for a month or a little longer because of the surgery. Please pray for healing and for God's peace for my family. Praising Him in This Storm," Hall ended the appeal in a nod to one of his band's more popular songs "Praise You In This Storm".
Casting Crowns have recently released their latest album "Thrive." This is part of our review of the album: "Casting Crowns on their seventh studio album "Thrive" helps us to channel our hunger in the direction of God's finest (and most gratifying) cuisines. Listening to this album is like dinning on a 12-course meal that not even the best of the Iron chefs could rival. Released conterminously with Mark Hall's newest book "Thrive - Digging Deep, Reaching Out," "Thrive" like its paper counterpart is here to challenge us to move beyond superficiality to a faith that is deeply rooted in Jesus Christ with branches that reach towards others in Christ-like love."
