David Cook’s Brother Adam Loses Fight With Brain Cancer

Reigning American Idol David Cook fought through last year’s competition while living through his brother Adam’s struggle with brain cancer. David would never have tried out without Adam’s prodding…they both auditioned and David ended up taking the whole contest.

Sadly, after battling cancer for more than a decade, Adam died on Saturday. David announced the news Sunday morning before the 12th annual Race for Hope 5K in Washington, D.C.

“I actually lost my brother yesterday to a brain tumor and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else right now,” Cook, 26, told the crowd at the benefit for brain cancer research.”

Cook was both serving as grand marshal and running with a team that raised $98,000. Our condolences and prayers go out for the Cook family.

  1. Dear David, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you will find strength and hope in continuing to fight this awful and too often fatal disease that is cancer. I myself lost a very dear friend to brain cancer in November 2008 only 9 months after his diagnosis. I will think of you and your family fondly and share your grief hoping each day will get a little easier. Take care and know that you are in our hearts
