It’s the perfect treat when you’re paddling on Parana.

Aaron Rodríguez never gave up when life seemed to turn his back and today, thanks to the sport, he hopes to write the most satisfying pages of history.

At age 20, Posadeno has been through it all: from asthma and leukemia, to the amputation of his right leg and the removal of half a lung. A true veteran who fought like a champion despite the cruel script fate had written for him.

“I got a fungus while playing rugby and something unexpected happened… it was a 360 that was hard to accept in my life,” he began. “I remember they got me between three players and I had a little gash on my leg when I got H. and the next day my knee was swollen,” he recalls.

“Things were unwittingly complicated by surveillance until they got the really bad news. I was 16 years old when they told me they had to amputate my leg.”

The 20-year-old maintains his balance thanks to his prostate.

On his own accord, Aaron left Madariga Hospital in December 2018, but returned to the emergency room just a month later: “They diagnosed me with acute leukemia and gave me only one year to live. The cancer woke me up because of the energy issue.

“In four months they gave me chemotherapy and luckily I got it out of my body; I tried to recover until 2020 when the lung news came. Honestly, I was on the side of death rather than life,” he was honest.

Instead of getting depressed, Rodriguez stuck to the sport as if it were an evil drug: “Thankfully, I was able to recover.” In order to continue my sports life, I first started with crossfit for about three months. Then they took me to Separd to practice high jumping… Today I go canoeing and water swimming at Leon Cerro Yacht Club, a great achievement.

And so it is. When commitment is the order of the day, miracles happen.

“Sports was a place where I could be low and come out. “In fact, to this day, I still come to the water to paddle, it’s the things that give you permission,” Aaron said. “Also, my family has always supported me, thanks to them I am here today. I am the eldest of three brothers.

“Canoeing was a difficult thing to learn. It is not easy to sit down with these problems and apply the technique, so the experience I took day by day. Now I am completely chilled and my hope is to get into the selected World Cup.

“Sometimes I feel bad, but thanks to what I have done, I can bear it,” closed Aaron, who is studying to work as a safety and hygiene technician.

A first hand example of pride for Itambe Guazu, pride for Mother Solodad and pride for the entire province.
