On Saturday (June 30), Lauren Alaina shared a heartbreaking story on social media about her stepfather, Sam Ramker's illness. He's currently battling with Stage 4 cancer. She wrote a note to fans, stating that she was moved by how many were reaching out asking about his condition. She stated in part: “He is fighting harder than I thought was possible. He is the strongest person I know. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care if you’re two or 80 years old. It doesn’t care if you’re a perfectly healthy 47 year old step-father, husband, and grandfather who eats healthily and runs 6 miles a day. It can happen to anyone.”
She also noted that a special GoFundMe page has been set up to assist with his rapidly growing medical expenses.
