A week after undergoing surgery for a mystery illness, the National Enquirer reports that singer Aretha Franklin has incurable pancreatic cancer.

The surgery, labeled a success, came under mysterious circumstances. This is the first time this illness has been reported. In November, she canceled all concerts through May 2011 due to “medical reasons.”

The Enquirer’s report lists pancreatic survival rates at 5-10%, and even lower for someone of Franklin’s age and weight.

I’ve heard that’s one of the most painful things there is.

Such a sad situation, I will pray for her and hope she pulls true. It just goes to show us that money is not important but rather life and we should value what we have and stop trying to take what others have or try to be like them.
