The singer and songwriter announced the operation via social media in December but shared more details on Wednesday.

“I will have surgery this Friday, January 3, 2020, in San Antonio,” he wrote on Facebook. “I have four damaged cervical vertebrae; two of them are blocking the blood supply to my spine causing a life-threatening condition called Myelomalacia. I will be away for some time but I trust in my Lord Jesus that I will come back healthier than ever.”

Molina previously said he suffered the injury during an accident.

Myelomalacia is a pathological term referring to the softening of the spinal cord, according to Wikipedia. Myelopathy is a very serious condition that if untreated can lead to significant and permanent nerve damage including paralysis and death.

Tejano Nation will keep you updated on Molina’s surgery and recovery as more details become available.

Written by Molina, “Cowboy Cumbia” is an incredibly catchy and danceable song featuring a highly contagious, down-on-the-farm type of cumbia beat, punctuated by it’s memorable and catchy phrases. The song single-handedly attracted a whole new generation of Tejano music lovers in the late 1990s.

Molina released his latest album, “Country Musica,” earlier this year.
