David Cook Visits Idol Finalist In Hospital

David Cook really seems like an overall nice and humble guy. He showed his humanitarian side before he was even named this season's winner when he showed up to visit finalist Luke Menard in the hospital.

Luke, who made it to the top 24, was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin's Lymphoma last week.

The two became close during Idol's Hollywood Week, and David wanted Luke to know he was there for him. He says, "I love Luke and I just wanted to show up and make sure that he understood that I love him and know that if there's anything I can do for him and his wife, sign me up, you know? Any time one of your own is going through something as horrible as that, it makes everything else seem a little bit insignificant.

David went on to say that he's been very aware of cancer in his life since
his older brother has been battling it for ten years. He says, "I'm excited
to be put in the spotlight where I can hopefully do something to help other people."

Cook's an Idol on and off the stage!
