Keep Fighting Alton Ellis

Hospitalised in London, Mr Soul of Jamaica, who suffers from cancer for several months, is not doing well.

According to The Jamaica Star online, legendary Jamaican singer Alton Ellis is not doing well. Suffering from cancer, he’s in hospital for a number of weeks, fighting against a cancer of the lymph glands. "We can't say we are hoping for the best in this situation. The family is looking for the worst," Clive Ellis, one of Alton's sons told The Star. "He is gasping for air. He is not talking, he is not moving, I don't think he is going to come out on top of this fight."

Although the family is not very optimistic about Alton health-enhancing, Alton Ellis has not passed away as the rumour was spread yesterday. Our thoughts go to Alton Ellis and his family.
