Her stepfather is battling Stage 4 cancer
Lauren Alaina is apologizing to fans after she was forced to cancel a concert in Rochester, New York.
The singer was supposed to perform last night as part of a local summer concert series but was forced to cancel due to a "family medical emergency," according to the radio station that was putting the event on.
Alaina later apologized on social media.
She did not say what the family emergency was, but Alaina revealed a few months ago that her stepfather was battling Stage 4 cancer.
An update from Alaina’s mother, Kristy, on Sam Ramker’s GoFundMe page offered more information on Tuesday:
“Update on Sam! He is currently in ICU due to a infection in his lungs. Today they are going to be draining the fluid. Please keep us in your prayers. Treatment is going well. We just hit a speed bump in the road. Treatment will continue this week as planned. Thanks everyone for all the prayers and donations. Our family is so grateful.”
