"Please, do not allow this facebook site to be an ongoing blog for cancer treatment remedy's (sic)," he wrote. "That would be depressing to everyone."
And while very few have offered specific treatment suggestions, Carman's page has been flooded with comments from almost 30,000 fans sending prayers and best wishes for the embattled singer. Here are a few:
Is there anything too hard for God? NO! We are believing with you for complete healing in Jesus name! - Julia Michelle Rickards Mutton
I hope the devil realizes that you can still SLAM, with or without the cancer. - Joshua Operia
What Doctors say is incurable, God calls healed. Every sickness and disease has to bow to the name of Jesus. So I command Myeloma Cancer in Carmen's body to die in Jesus Name and the healing manifestation to flow through your body now in the name of Jesus! - Shannon Stewart
You give so much, don't be ashamed of taking time for you - especially when you need to. It will give you more time! God is GOOD! - Pam Clark
Carman has not sent any communication via social media since his last Facebook post on February 14, but concerned fans can be sure that the performer is not wasting away in self-pity.
"I want you all to know that I will continue to minister and win souls until I can't do it any longer," Carman wrote. "My life has always been about ministry. I have a call of God to touch lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ and that's what I will do until the Lord calls me home."
