These patients who govern Latin America.

 "Leaders cancer patients" *
A disease that spreads terror,
Disease that Heaven in its wrath
Invented to punish the crimes of the earth,
Cancer (since we must call by name)
Was the war Latino leaders.
They did not all die, but all were beaten.
... My dear friends,
I think the sky has invented
This misfortune for their sins;
Because of these people that their people
Are a visionary empire.
Do not flatter ourselves, therefore, see no indulgence
The state of their power.
Because we wish to justice in all
That the most guilty perish.
As may be democratic or dictator,
The Divine Judgement will make him white or black.

Argentina: From tears of joy to the uncertainties of the future.
         "On December 22, 2011, during routine examinations, a papillary carcinoma was detected in the right lobe of the thyroid gland of Mrs. Kirchner. (...) There was no metastasis and surgery is scheduled for January 4, 2012. The disease is limited. "Announced the spokesman of the Presidency, Alfredo Soccimarro adding that she should be hospitalized for 72 hours and follow a 20-day convalescence.
"The outlook is excellent and the tumor should not change after the operation," said the oncologist Mario Bruno, a member of the Argentine Association of Oncology.
Ms Cristina Elisabet Fernandez de Kirchner will be replaced by his vice president Amado Boudou, recently took office after Economy Minister.
First elected December 10, 2007, she has been triumphantly re-elected October 23, 2011 in the first round for a second term.
         She is the widow of President Nestor Carlos Kirchner felled by a heart attack at age 60 at night at his home in El Calafate, Province of Santa Cruz October 27, 2010 during his term.

Brazil: Dlima Roussef after Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva ... and former Vice President Jose Alencar.
         Dlima Vana Rousseff, born in 1947, the first woman elected president of Brazil has also suffered from cancer. Indeed, 26 April 2009, a month after her election, she announced that she was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer and should undergo chemotherapy with a high probability of cure.
But what is curious is the fact that his predecessor, aged 66, Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva was admitted to the Syrian-Lebanese Hospital in Sao Paulo. The former president of Brazil (2003 to 2010) should follow an outpatient chemotherapy to fight cancer that affects the larynx. After two terms marked by a sharp decline in poverty in Brazil, Lula, a former steelworker, has completed his two terms in late 2010.
The series has only just begun because the former vice president of Brazil from 2003 to 2011, José Alencar Gomes da Silva who was born October 17, 1931 died of a generalized cancer March 29, 2011 in Sao Paulo.
President Fernando Lugo worried Paraguayans.
         President Armando Fernandez Lugo Mendez, born in 1951, is suffering from lymphatic cancer diagnosed in August 2010. Despite the advanced stage of his cancer, he continued as president for the duration of treatment.
His doctors say he can continue to heal with chemotherapy, but in the meantime his popularity has fallen very low, especially after the recognition of children born to his escapades during his priesthood.
His social reforms have stalled after losing its majority in Parliament.
He who was once nicknamed "The bishop of the poor" and whose election promises had raised so much hope in this poor country of South America after 62 years of Conservative government.
If he has introduced free in public health and limited corruption, part of the population is also disappointed by the paralysis of his social program and the slow pace of land reform in a country where 80% of land is in the hands of 2% of the inhabitants, says pollster Francisco Caplis.
"For about 5 to 6 days between chemotherapy sessions, the President must take precautions to avoid being in contact with too many people in enclosed spaces or with the crowd to avoid infections," explains his doctor Alfredo Boccia.
Chemotherapy and pilgrimage to the healing of the cancer of Venezuela's president Hugo Chavez.
         Back from Cuba where he underwent surgery and four sessions of chemotherapy, the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela said he was cured of his cancer. The strongman of Caracas intends to run for president in 2012.
"Everything went perfectly. I have the highest scores, 20 out of 20. I am free of the disease. The new Chavez came," said the socialist president on his arrival in La Fria, in western Venezuela where he plans to make a pilgrimage to a Catholic shrine.
Hugo Chavez Frias, who is 57 years old, announced in June that he was suffering from cancer without providing details. He underwent four rounds of chemotherapy in Cuba after surgery in the region of the abdomen June 20 in Havana.

At 83, President Fidel Castro was the first Latin American president who resigned ... due to illness!

On July 31, 2006, "El Comandante" is seriously ill. A 80-year-old Cuban leader underwent three surgeries and heavy as general anesthesia, peritonitis, removal of the colon and complications in the gall bladder, according to medical sources quoted by the Spanish newspaper El Pais .
"Castro suffered in the summer of intestinal bleeding and severe infection (peritonitis) caused by inflammation of the large intestine, which in medical term is called diverticulitis," said the newspaper citing medical sources at the hospital Gregorio Maranon de Madrid.
On April 19, 2011, he officially ceded power to his younger brother Raul Castro, elected under section 94 of the Cuban Constitution by the National Assembly February 24, 2008. Ubiquitous for nearly half a century, Fidel Castro is the only head of state that 70% of 11 million Cubans have known.
But Castro has a dimension that exceeds the limits of his country, his opposition remained intact to the powerful American neighbor, and his role in the Non-Aligned Movement. He is so important that others in the American sub-continent were inspired by this time and ensure continuity.
In the interview, published in the Mexican daily "La Jornada", the former Cuban president says he had happened several times in the antechamber of death, but he came back.
"I wondered if they (the doctors) would let me live in these conditions or if they would let me die," said Fidel Castro to Mexican reporter of "La Jornada".
Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was born August 13, 1923 and came to power in Havana in the wake of a revolution in February 1959.
