Aretha Franklin has treatment for Pancreatic Cancer

Postby PressWatch » Thu Dec 09, 2010 6:53 pm

'Say a little Prayer' singer Aretha Franklin is reported in a number of media including LA Times to have received treatment for PC. There are no details of the illness nor treatment.

We naturally hope she recovers soon, though the World-wide fame of the singer is bound to bring greater awareness of this terrible and deadly disease. And with awareness hopefully a continuing increase in the demand for overdue screening, earlier diagnosis and treatments.

The article in the Los Angeles Times below contains a useful summary entitled 'Whats New in Pancreatic Cancer Research' from the American Cancer Society.
