After battling pancreatic cancer for 25 months, Ray Price is done fighting. The country music legend has chosen to spend his final days at home with his family, in Texas.

His wife Janis tells KLTV, the cancer has spread to Price's liver, intestines and lungs.

With God's blessing he has not had extreme pain. But it's with great sadness that I announce to you today that my beloved husband has entered the final stages of his cancer that he has battled for 25 months. Anyone who knows Ray is aware that he has strong convictions and great faith in God. It's his decision to leave the hospital and return home to spend his final days on his beloved ranch surrounded by the comfort of his home, family and friends.

Ray had one last message for his fans.

I love my fans and have devoted my life to reaching out to them. I appreciate their support all these years and I hope I haven't let them down. I am at peace. I love Jesus. I'm going to be just fine. Don't worry about me. I'll see you again one day.
