The Legendary Queen of Soul has Pancreatic Cancer!

My uncle died 11 months after diagnosis, but his was diagnosed after a fall when his spleen ruptured. No diabetic symptoms.

I am sorry to hear about this. My condolences...

Why would a disease be more common among celebrities than the general public?

I think she meant that it gets given more attention in the media when it is happening to a celebrity, perhaps making it seem like it is on the rise, or more prevalent in the population...

thank you! this is what I meant...

I am not offended. don't worry..... :) it is hard to express emotion online.
