Dave's brother dead

...

Quote:
After battling cancer for more than a decade, David Cook's brother, Adam, died Saturday, the American Idol winner announced Sunday morning before the 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 (see video above). Cook was both serving as grand marshal and running with a team that raised $97,000.

Cook's brother, Adam, 36, had battled the disease throughout Cook's American Idol competition, and had the chance to see his younger sibling perform in April 2008 on the famous stage. At the time, Adam was undergoing chemotherapy treatment.

Is brain cancer caused by stress or hereditary ?

or cell phones or diet coke or any one of a number of other causes.


But I am saddened to learn that Big Brother is not real.
