Music legend Freddy Fender diagnosed with cancer

Thursday August 3, 2006

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP): Music legend Freddy Fender has been diagnosed with incurable cancer after tests showed he has several tumors on his lungs.


“I feel very comfortable in my life,” Fender told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. “I’m one year away from 70 and I’ve had a good run. I really believe I’m OK. In my mind and in my heart, I feel OK. I cannot complain that I haven’t lived long enough, but I’d like to live longer.”

Fender started his career in the late 1950s and hit the Billboard charts with “Before The Next Teardrop Falls,” “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights,” and “You’ll Lose A Good Thing.”
