Aretha Franklin Talks About Cancer Reports
The Queen of Soul is finally addressing the pancreatic cancer rumors that hit headlines in December. On Dec. 2, she underwent surgery for a still undisclosed illness, following a cancellation of concert dates on doctor’s orders. Then, late last year, “The Detroit Free Press” cited an anonymous source that said Franklin was being treated for pancreatic cancer. But on Thursday, Franklin told “Access Hollywood”, “I don’t know where ‘pancreatic cancer’ came from…No one in my family ever said that."
