Young Money rapper Drake has publicly reached out to his fans and asked them to help pray for his mother.   The 23-year-old rapper says in a statement that he wants to support his mother during her recovery “just as she supported me through the years.”

Drake’s mother Sandi Graham is sick, and she is his biggest fan. Drake has always had a close relationship with his mother and even took her as his date to the 2010 Grammys. Drake, born Aubrey Graham, revealed in his MTV documentary, Better Than Good Enough, that his mother suffers from a mystery illness, and he’s afraid to lose her to the disease.

The European leg of his “The Away From Home Tour” had been scheduled to kick off Friday in Norway. It will be rescheduled for November.  Drake will still tour in his home country of Canada, starting July 16 in Ottawa.
