Prayers Up: Tina Turner Suffering Stomach Cancer

A special #WCW prayers up today as it’s being reported the legendary Tina Turner is facing issues with stomach cancer according to BET

The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll is allegedly struggling with the disease and her body is rejecting a kidney transplant that she underwent recently and shared her experience with in her memoir, My Love Story. As aforementioned, Turner’s team has not yet confirmed such reports.

For the younger generation that doesn’t know her story, Tina Turner is known as “The Queen Of Rock ‘N Roll” who overcame the odds with a huge comeback in the 1980’s.

Her marriage to Ike Turner is of infamous folklore for the way he treated the superstar. In her memoir she broke it down even more than the classic movie “What’s Love Got To Do With it”? that starred the iconic Angela Bassett.

“He threw hot coffee in my face, giving me third-degree burns,” she writes. “He used my nose as a punching bag so many times that I could taste blood running down my throat when I sang. He broke my jaw. And I couldn’t remember what it was like not to have a black eye.”

The above quote is from her memoirs and alluded to her emotional pain that led to her to wanting to commit suicide.

One night … we heard this loud ‘bang, bang, bang’ coming from outside. When we looked, we saw that the back window of Rhonda’s car had been blown out with bullets,” she writes. “Another night, they actually shot into the house. We were so scared that Rhonda slept in the boys’ room and I slept in the closet because the room had a skylight and I was afraid there would be more shooting
