Lou Rawls Dies Of Lung Cancer

Lou Rawls Dies Of Lung Cancer
On December 18. 2005, I wrote about Lou Rawls, and his fight against lung cancer. Today I am writing about the sad demise of this gifted singer to lung cancer.

Lou Rawls was diagnosed with lung cancer just over a year ago. He was found to have spread of lung cancer to his brain in May 2005. In December, when I was writing that blog post, Lou Rawls was still bravely fighting his lung cancer.

Rawls is an accomplished artist and has released more than 70 albums, he has been in movies, television shows and voiced-over many cartoons. His career covered almost every form of black American music from gospel and blues to RandB, soul and jazz. He was 70 years old when he finally succumbed to lung cancer. Rawls won three Grammy awards and 13 nominations in a career that lasted more than 40 years

Rawls died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, as per reports where he was receiving his medical treatment.

Rawls received many honors during his lifetime including having a street named after him in Chicago. Rawls recently filmed public service announcements for Hurricane Katrina relief. His last public performances were a series of three concerts he gave in San Diego in mid-November.

In 1958, while touring the South with the Travelers and Sam Cooke, Rawls was in a serious car crash, which claimed the life of one person. Rawls was actually pronounced dead before getting to the hospital where he stayed in a coma for 5 1/2 days. It took him months to regain his memory and a year to fully recuperate. Rawls considered the event life changing.

Again this is a grim reminder for all of us regarding the dangers of lung cancer and smoking.

Lung cancer
We engage a never-ending daily struggle to understand and defeat the hidden mysteries of cancer. This is a long and laborious fight, but some moments stand out as grim reminders of the severity of the problem and ruthlessness of the enemy. We recently heard about the sad demise of Peter Jennings, who was the news anchor of ABC News for a long time.
