    Oh no! This is unreal, yet another one of our Legends. Cancer is not a game people, watch your health.

    When I heard her say that, I thought she meant cancer in general but not necessarily pancreatic cancer. I hope Gladys’ is a more easily cured form.

    My aunt also died from this cancer… having diabetes is a huge direct link to this cancer… we have to start eating better & changing our diets, eating less meat, eating our raw fruits & veggies & detoxifying our bodies from all that food!

    Gladys Knight’s publicist made a clarification — she does not have cancer. Maybe Gladys Knight found out she’s diabetic, and that was the connect illness.

    She does not have cancer. She HAD stage 1 breast cancer at one point and beat it. She is currently cancer free.
