Beloved Doctor, Dr. Fernando Cuellar, Battles Blood Cancer: Receiving Treatment in US

He is perhaps the most vocal medical practitioner in the country and is the only doctor who has never declined to give media interviews on matters in the health sector.  Tonight, however, Dr Fernando Cuellar is being treated for cancer in the blood.  His diagnosis came recently as was confirmed by the Belize Medical Associates where he had his practice.  A release from the BMA indicated that Cuellar had initially sought medical attention for a back fracture, which led to the cancer diagnosis.  We understand that the 53-year-old Internist is now in the United States receiving treatment.  According to Yale Medicine, cancer in the blood is, “usually the result of an abnormal and excessive reproduction of white blood cells. Blood cancers account for about 10 percent of all diagnosed cancers in the U.S. each year. Blood cancers (including leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma) are more common in men than women.”  At this time, the family is asking for privacy and prayers for a full recovery.
