David Cook's Brother Dies Of Cancer

American Idol champ David Cook‘s older brother Adam has passed away after an 11-year battle with brain cancer.

David announced the sad news about his 36-year-old brother on Sunday at the Race for Hope 5K fund-raising race in Washington D.C.

“Like everybody here, I’m affected by this disease,” he told the crowd at the event, which raised money to support finding a cure for brain cancer. “I actually lost my brother yesterday to a brain tumor and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else right now. I lost one today, but I gained 9,000, and I will be here every year that they will have me.”
