Etta James Has Leukemia and Dementia

At Last singer Etta James (72) is receiving around the clock health care at her Southern California home after being diagnosed with leukemia and dementia.  And as if this was bad enough, her husband and son are battling over her money.

Etta’s husband wants to put about $1 million into a joint account so he can control the spending himself.  But, her son wants a third party to control all of it,  “avoid future and present family conflict.”

Her husband says she doesn’t want her final days to be in the hospital and that’s why he wants full control.  Their is a judge seeing over this case and a hearing is scheduled for today.
