11/7/2012 (Courtesy TheBoot.com) — Good Morning! Ray Price has revealed he’s battling pancreatic cancer, but the 86-year-old country legend refuses to let the disease stop him from entertaining his adoring fans.
“The doctor said that every man will have cancer if he lives to be old enough,” the singer tells the San Antonio Express-News. “I don’t know why I got it — I ain’t old.”
This is Price’s second cancer scare. In 2009, he underwent surgery to remove polyps from his colon. The music icon’s latest diagnosis came after gallbladder surgery revealed a tumor. He endured six months of chemotherapy and is happy to report the tumor has not grown and he feels fine. In fact, he headlined a concert in Floresville, Texas, just this past weekend.
