Aretha Franklin Has Cancer

This is horrible! Just one week after being hospitalized for a mystery illness, Aretha Franklin has been diagnosed with cancer.

Fox News was able to confirm the sad news through a source well connected with Aretha.

The National Enquirer reported Wednesday that she has incurable pancreatic cancer, which has a 5-10% chance of recovery. The chances would be even lower for someone of Aretha's age and weight.

Last Thursday, Franklin released a statement on her illness saying, “The surgery was highly successful. God is still in control. I had superb doctors and nurses whom were blessed by all the prayers of the city and the country. God bless you all for your prayers! -- The Queen of Soul, Ms. Aretha Franklin”

You're in our thoughts and prayers Ms. Aretha!
