Carman's Kickstarter Campaign On Target Following Terminal Cancer Diagnosis

May 10 2013

Legendary Christian singer, songwriter and actor Carman's Kickstarter campaign has become the most successful Christian music campaign ever.

More than $160,000 has already been raised of the $200,000 goal ahead of the 18th June deadline. Once fully funded the campaign will see Carman record a new album of all new music for the first time in over 10-years.

In March Carman was diagnosed with terminal, multiple myeloma cancer, a cancer of the blood that affects the body's bone marrow, and was given a three to five year life expectancy by doctors. Stunned and initially devastated by the news, Carman's spirit was soon lifted up by the overwhelming love and support received by tens of thousands of fans after posting the news on his Facebook page.

Turning the death sentence into a renewed vision and hope for the future, Carman is not only determined to fight the cancer, but is also well underway to his first independent, fan-funded new album and music video through Kickstarter.

"I'm so excited about this incredible opportunity we all have through Kickstarter to make something happen as a team and a family," says Carman to his fans. "Cancer pronounced a death sentence, but you have been life to me, rallying me back into the fight and praying me back to my feet. As one fan said on my Facebook page, 'Look at what Jesus did in three years.' So as for you and me, with this new project and us working together, the next three years are going to be a blast."
