12/11/2013 Marquette, Michigan — Country legend Ray Price is reportedly back in the hospital after a new round of complications stemming from his battle with pancreatic cancer.

The 87-year-old singer checked back into East Texas Medical Center in Tyler, Texas last Monday, December 2nd.

“I speak with Ray by phone quite often,” Hall of Fame deejay Bill Mack said, “and he always retains that Price spirit, even though I’m aware of the fact that he’s going through the toughest health issue of his life.”


Price’s wife, Janie, has been faithfully keeping fans up-to-date on his condition via Facebook since he was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November of 2012. He has been in and out of the hospital ever since, first for treatment, and then to deal with the after-effects.




The last official update on Price’s Facebook page was on November 29th, when his wife stated he was recovering after being released from the hospital in time to spend Thanksgiving at home.
