    Aretha Franklin Has Cancer

    http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/dpp/news...fox-2-confirms

    myFOXdetroit.com Staff - Fox 2 News in Detroit has learned that the "Queen of Soul" has cancer. A relative of Aretha Franklin tells reporter Al Allen that the icon has cancer. Another relative says the family is very concerned.
    At this time Franklin's family says she is doing "OK", but they are asking for the continued prayers and thoughts from the community.

    The National Enquirer says it's pancreatic cancer. UGH!

    Oh bless, I just love the Queen of Soul. You know, Pancreatic Cancer is such a horrid one. I sincerely hope it was caught in the very early stages.

    Pancreatic cancer can be controlled only if it is found before it has spread and only if it can be removed by surgery. If the cancer has spread, palliative treatment can improve the patient's quality of life by controlling the symptoms and complication; however, palliative treatment cannot cure the disease.

    My prayers go out to her --

    that's the thing about pancreatic cancer, it's usually at a high stage by the time it's found. maybe they were doing a check up on her for something else and found it by accident. that would be good. if she got sick because it's already spread, not so good. so sad...

    I had an idea of this news from a brief clip aired a couple of days ago.

    Long Live the Queen of Soul!

    If her publicist chooses to paint a brighter picture, I can understand and respect such a choice...it's not an unfamiliar way to handle bad news and most particularly if that's how the client wants it to be publicized once noticed by the media.

    And so...either way...I join with others in sending most positive thoughts for a complete recovery from her surgery.

    (I have scuffs which I call my "Aretha slippers", courtesy of her scene in the 1980 Blues Bros movie singing "Think"...I've danced right along with her hundreds of times, and worn-out plenty pairs!)

    She truly is the Queen of Soul, she sure can belt out a song with feeling.
    Prayers for you Miss Franklin and a good recovery.

    PS She was so funny in the Blues Bros, loved her.

    My prayers for Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul...

    I hope for her sake the doctors caught this deadly disease in time. The success rate of beating pancreatic cancer is very low...unless caught in the early stages..sending positive thoughts and healing energy Aretha's way..JMHO
