The Queen Of Soul Has Cancer

A week after undergoing surgery for a mystery illness, the National Enquirer reports that famed singer Aretha Franklin has incurable pancreatic cancer.  In November, she canceled all concerts through May 2011 due to “medical reasons.”The Enquirer’s report lists pancreatic survival rates at 5-10%, and even lower for someone of Franklin’s age and weight.

Franklin announced last week that she had undergone a surgical procedure. Neither she nor her publicist have said what is ailing the 68-year-old Queen of Soul.The Rev. Jesse Jackson told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he visited Franklin four or five times and her spirits “are high and her faith is strong.” The legendary singer is “doing better than doctors expected” and expects to be released from the hospital this weekend.
