Here's the excerpt from EUR Web:
 
August 11, 2009
 
*Legendary R&B singer/songwriter Teddy Pendergrass is thankful for the support of fans since being hospitalized for what is described as a health crisis.

     The 59-year-old entertainer, who has been staying at Bryn Mawr Hospital in Philadelphia for about a month, recently found himself at the center of rumors that involve him being close to death.

     Pendergrass and his wife, Joan, spoke out about the gossip while expressing his appreciation to fans for their concern. 

     "I wish to thank my fans for their prayers, concerns and love," the Kingstree, South Carolina native said in a statement. "While I have faced recent health challenges, I am in the care of my wonderful doctors, wife Joan and family."

     According to reports, the nature of Pendergrass' illness is not publicly known.

     Although he understands the curiosity of his fans, the Grammy-nominated vocalist requests that “you respect our privacy."

     "Do know that I'm looking forward to continuing my work at the Teddy Pendergrass Alliance to help people with spinal cord injuries," he added.

     Pendergrass’ current health issues mark the latest chapter in the singer’s saga surrounding his physical well-being. In 1982, he was involved in a life-changing automobile accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down with limited use of his arms after sustaining damage to his spinal cord.

     Since the accident, the singer has worked with the Spinal Cord Injury Association to help those suffering from spinal chord injuries. Pendergrass briefly returned to the stage a year after announcing his retirement from the music business in 2006 to celebrate his music career, acknowledge the impact of his auto accident and thank fans for helping him at an event called "Teddy 25: A Celebration of Life, Hope & Possibilities."

Hope Teddy gets well soon.  Love him so much!
