Breaking News by David Cook

David, as seen at the race

Adam Cook, David Cook's brother, who's been battling brain tumor since 10 years ago, died peacefully yesterday

David made the announcement just after he finished May 3rd Race for Hope in Washington DC earlier this morning.

Please post your thoughts and/or prayers, words of support & understanding for Dave & his family here.

Here's the article:

After a long and valiant struggle with brain cancer, “American Idol” winner David Cook’s brother Adam died at 1 a.m. this morning at a hospice in Terre Haute, IN.

A family friend told exclusively, “Adam passed away peacefully.

“He was surrounded by his family, including his wife Kendra, his children, his father and his step-mom, among others.”

David was rushing back on a jet when his beloved brother died.

“The family thought that Adam would go much sooner than this, actually,” said the Cook family friend.

“That’s why David left his tour a few weeks back so that he could be with Adam.

“They said their goodbyes then.”

But Adam, 36, rallied briefly after that…and David returned to his concert tour.

“He took a turn for the worse this weekend and David rushed to get home.”

But sadly he couldn’t make it in time.

Last year, friends of the stricken lawyer arranged a $45,000 trip on a chartered medical jet to Los Angeles so Adam could see David perform on Idol.

Toby: Light On to David Cook!
