Aretha Franklin Is Battling Cancer
A relative of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Aretha Franklin[/lastfm] has confirmed with Fox 2 what has been plaguing the singer’s health. The Queen of Soul has cancer. It is unknown at this time what form of cancer she has, but another source is claiming to know what exactly she has.
The National Enquirer published a story (not available online) saying that Franklin’s cancer is pancreatic. The same report notes sources saying Aretha has less than a year to live.
Franklin did undergo surgery last week, which was deemed a success, but still canceled all of her concerts through May 2011 due to “medical reasons.”
We wish Aretha Franklin the best and a hope for a full recovery. We’ll be thinking of her!
