Freddy Fender is resting at his home near Corpus Christi, Texas, after doctors found more tumors on his lungs. Diagnosed with two cancerous tumors in January, a recent scan discovered nine more. Fender, 69, has canceled all performances. Fender first found national success in 1960 when his original recording of "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" became a pop hit. As a country artist, his 1975 single, "Before the Next Teardrop Falls," won a CMA award for single of the year. His other No. 1 hits include "Secret Love" and "You'll Lose a Good Thing" and an updated version of "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights." He has also won three Grammys in the Latin category. In a story published Wednesday (Aug. 2) in Corpus Christi's Caller-Times newspaper Fender said, "I feel very comfortable in my life. 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."
