Casting Crowns lead singer Mark Hall announced March 5th on social media that he has been diagnosed with what doctors believe is cancer.

Quoting from his announcement that he released on the group’s Facebook page, the singer states,

“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”
