NEW  CLUB  ADDRESS       10-13 Club of Northeast FL

PO  Box  291862        Port  Orange, FL  32129


From Member  Antonio (Tony) Rodriguez

        I don't know where to start, so I will start by asking my fellow retirees in both clubs to keep my wife Socorro (Coqui) Rodriguez in your pray's as we move forward with aggressive cancer treatment.  We started the cancer fight on July of last year, when she was diagnosed with throat, and lung cancer (stage 4). After a P.E.T. scan in December we were informed that the cancer had been defeated and it was the best Christmas of our lives.

The latter was shortly lived when on April 4th of this year she had a follow-up P.E.T. scan which identified cancer (Squamous cell carcinoma) in both her lungs and in her blood.  It has come back with a vengeance...

In closing let me thank all of you in advance and also to say that we believe in the power of prayer...

Best Regards

The Rodriguez Family

Thank you Eddie, yes please post.  We are currently under treatment here in Naples with 21st Century Oncology and are receiving the best care possible for lung cancer.  Perhaps other members who are or might have gone through a similar process can offer us some advice going forward.  Any information is desperately welcome..

Thanks so much and God Bless

 Update  9/6/19

Thank you so much for thinking of us, it is remarkable how someone like you, that has so much in their basket to carry around could even find the time for an e-mail.  You are one of a kind my friend.  Coqui is doing fairly well, we just got back Moffit Cancer Center in Tampa seeking a second opinion and were told that the best option seems to to continue the regiment of chem.  Our faith in God continues to guide us going forward,  Again, thanks so much for all the prayers offered for Coqui (who has been my bride for 55 yrs.) and who still is the love of my life.      Tony
