Casting Crowns Lead Singer, Mark Hall Diagnosed With Cancer


News broke today that the lead singer of beloved band Casting Crowns, Mark Hall, has been diagnosed with cancer.  According to Hall, doctors found a solid mass in his kidney last week, and the entire kidney will have to be removed.

Below is a statement from Mark Hall from Casting Crowns facebook page, posted earlier today:

Hey Casting Crowns Family,
I would appreciate your prayers.
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.

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
Mark Hall

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mark and his family, and all of the Casting Crowns family.
