Popular Christian entertainer Carman Licciardello, mononymously known as Carman, recently overcame an intense battle with cancer and is now spreading his testimony with others battling the disease by launching "Night of Victory" campaign.
The popular evangelist took to Facebook with a photo of himself backstage posing with fans who are battling cancer and revealed that he's launching the new campaign to help raise money. The money will be used to perform full-production concerts free for all the cancer patients, their families, the nurses, doctors and all people in need of a miracle.
"3 years ago I was diagnosed with incurable cancer and given a short time to live. With God's grace, coupled with your prayers and support I won my war and today I'm 100 % cancer free. But the pictures you see are those in the thick of their battle. My campaign on Gofundme is simply called 'A Night of Victory.' Backstage after every concert I personally give a special Prayer Bear to those in cancer treatment right now. Showing them, like it says on the Bears 'Somebody's praying for me' Our concerts and tours have an added dimension of hope and healing that we've never had before. But I need your donations and support to keep going. People come to these concerts with their faith held high, believing for a miraculous touch from God. And they aren't disappointed. Please open your heart right now to help me bring this 'Night of Victory' to these precious people who need this event. Watch these precious souls on this Facebook site and see how we are building prayer chains for folks just like you, who need encouragement," he posted. more >>
