Jose Luis Rodríguez Suffers From An Incurable Disease

Jose Luis Rodríguez “El Puma” left the audience in shock when he came on stage during a presentation at Barranquilla, Colombia looking completely different than they are used to seeing him. He looked tired, thin, his hair completely white, and was accompanied by an oxygen tank. The singer suffers from pulmonary fibrosis and has been dealing with this incurable disease since 2000.

The singer didn’t want to cancel the show, even when just a couple of days he had two catheterizations. During a cardiac catheterization, a long tube called a catheter is inserted in an artery or vein in your groin, neck, or arm and threaded through your blood vessels to your heart.
