Earlier this week, we told you [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Aretha Franklin[/lastfm] was doing well after her unidentified surgery.  Well today it’s being reported by her family that she has cancer.

According to the FOX TV affililate in Detroit, her family is reporting the “Queen Of Soul” is doing OK and is asking for people’s prayers and thoughts during this time.

It was reported by The National Enquirer, who was actually the first to report on Patrick Swayze’s cancer, that her cancer is incurable pancreatic cancer, but that has not been confirmed.

It was back in November when Franklin announced she was canceling her tour through May 2011.

After her surgery on Thursday, she released the following statement:

“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! — The Queen of Soul, Ms. Aretha Franklin”

We’re all hoping for the best for Aretha and hopes she gets well soon.
