A full statement addressing the rumors she has cancer has been released on her website following her stomach surgery.
Dolly Parton, one of our favorite and most memorable country artists, has been breaking down walls for the women of country for over 60 years. Known for her singing, acting, and sharp business skills, Parton is truly a legend.
In the last few weeks, rumors have begun circulating about Parton possibly having stomach cancer because of a visit to the hospital for another stomach ailment.
Thankfully, she reached out via her website to let all of her anxious fans know that she is just fine and cancer free.
“It is true that I had kidney stones. I had them removed three weeks ago and I am doing just fine! I am back to work and last week I was at Dollywood filming parts for my new movie “Coat of Many Colors,” which premieres December 10th on NBC. With the 30th Anniversary of Dollywood, I did a full week of activities promoting my new DreamMore Resort’s opening. There is absolutely no truth at all that I have stomach cancer. I love and appreciate everyone’s concern.”
We are incredibly happy to hear that she is back to work after her minor road bump and that she is as healthy as ever!
