Aretha Franklin Speaks Out About Having Cancer


We’ve all been concerned and waiting to hear updates about Aretha Franklin ever since she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She had surgery for her condition late last year and had released a hopeful statement during her recovery which read, “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!”

Aretha’s latest interview with JET has been more revealing (in a manner of speaking) about how she’s been coping with the situation. She’s definite in not divulging personal details but succinctly says her condition has been “resolved”. She explained, “I am not going to even deal with that. I don’t have to talk about my health with anybody other than my doctors. The problem has been resolved.” She refused to discuss her personal life, stating, “I am not one to do a lot of talking about my personal health or business. Not too much, not too much. There are a lot of people who will talk about anything, as long as there is somebody listening. But I am not one of those people. That’s not Aretha.”

With all this privacy shrouding her responses she did want to send out a proper message to her fans. Aretha capped off the interview with gratitude towards them saying, “I know my fans are concerned. Let them know I am feeling great and coming along.I want to thank my fans and friends and supporters who have prayed for me and sent me beautiful cards and flowers. Please continue to respect my privacy as I continue to recover.” We wish her our best.
