David Cook Thanks Supporters

David Cook gives thanks to fans who showed support for him after his brother passed away due to brain cancer. 

He took his myspace page to say this:

“My brother never wanted his illness to affect others. That was evident in the fact that he wanted his illness to have no part in my experience on Idol, a point he was quite adamant about. So, with that wish in mind, I ran and was involved with the event as an homage to him.”

“I want to again thank everyone who donated to the race and continues to donate, sent a kind email, posted thoughts and prayers, called, etc. I take it as affirmation that my brother was the great man that I knew, and whose ideals I constantly try to uphold in myself. It is with those ideals in tow that I vow to continue to speak out in hopes of raising whatever necessary to help eliminate cancer entirely.”

“Thank you to everyone for allowing us, as a family, to grieve and come to terms privately. This event has shown me, beyond doubt, that I have the greatest people in my life, family, friends, and fans alike, and for that, I can never offer enough thanks.”

We hope David Cook and family are doing well during this tough time.-Dr.FB

    Actually, he won the whole shebang last year. Saw him on Saturday Night Live a few months ago and was impressed.
