    It is being reported that soul singer Bobby Womack has been diagnosed with colon cancer after he was admitted to hospital suffering from pneumonia. His friend Bootsy Collins revealed the news via a series of posts on his Facebook page on Sunday, March 25.

    Womack previously battled prostate cancer, so this is a second, yet different battle with the disease.

    Collins said that the doctors confirmed that Womack, 68, is in the first stage of colon cancer and that Womack is upbeat and keeping a positive attitude despite the diagnosis.

    We send out thoughts and prayers out to Bobby Womack and family.

    Did you send good thoughts and prayers out to Bobby Womack?
