(WXYZ) - Aretha Franklin is battling pancreatic cancer.
A close family friend confirmed that this is the health issue that the 'Queen of Soul' is now facing.
Franklin underwent surgery on December 2, although it was not released what she was having surgery for. That procedure was successful. Shortly after surgery, Franklin thanked everyone who was thinking and praying for her.
Last month, Franklin announced she was canceling all further concert dates and appearances through May.
