Pancreatic cancer claimed the lives of Patrick Swayze and Michael Landon, the survival rate from this form of cancer is low.
Dr. H. Leon Pachter, chairman of surgery at New York University Langone Medical Center told CBS News that the diagnosis is terrible news for Franklin. "It's a grim diagnosis, overall, the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer patients is 35 percent," Pachter said.
Despite the reports, those around the singer remain optimistic.
Her cousin Brenda Corbett told the Detroit Free Press that the 68-year old Franklin "was in good spirits" and "doing really good."

Let's hope and pray for the best in this situation.
