Over the past few weeks, there has been a rumor that has been bubbling to the surface about Dolly Parton's health.  Specifically, some tabloids have hinted that Dolly could be suffering from stomach cancer. 

Parton has issued the following statement:

"It is true that I had kidney stones. I had them removed three weeks ago and I am doing just fine! I am back to work and last week I was at Dollywood filming parts for my new movie "Coat of Many Colors," which premieres December 10th on NBC. With the 30th Anniversary of Dollywood, I did a full week of activities promoting my new DreamMore Resort's opening. There is absolutely no truth at all that I have stomach cancer. I love and appreciate everyone's concern." - Dolly Parton
