TULSA, OKLAHOMA (ANS) -- Carman Licciardello, the recording artist and Christian evangelist who earlier this year revealed he has terminal cancer, said on his Facebook page Wednesday he was admitted to the ER.
He continued, “Over the next few hours my body vacated everything including most of my water. I couldn't even take a sip of water without getting violently ill. My temperature started to rise by the hour and my doctor knew that I was dehydrating pretty quickly. This is a war I'm fighting on a daily basis and I might be trying too hard. I don't know ... But as of right now, this is not good.”
Carman is involved in a new album and video project through Kickstarter, a funding platform for creative projects.
A May 28 update on the project read in part, “So ... the Kickstarter program (is) giving me an opportunity to record again, and everything above the $200,000 is going into the stage production. I'm now feeling very responsible to get healthy so I can perform on tour and not pass out from lack of oxygen.”
