Middletown Man Confesses Love And Devotion In The Face Of Debilitating Illness

CUTLINE: Jacqueline Rivera and her husband, Luis, both of Middletown, interview with Felix Viera, host of “Hablando En Serio,” a Spanish-speaking show airing Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to noon on the Berlin-based based La Puertorriquenisima 1120 AM WPRX. Jacqueline, an MS spokesperson, recently guested with her husband, who shared with listeners his unrelenting commitment and love for his wife in the face of the many challenges associated with her illness. Jacqueline is a longtime supporter of the National MS Society, Connecticut Chapter. A native of Puerto Rico, Jacqueline, 50, was diagnosed in 2009 with multiple sclerosis, a potentially debilitating disease. Jacqueline, who earlier this year retired, spent the entirety of her career working for the Connecticut State Senate. As a result of the effects of MS, she now uses a wheel chair for mobility. La Puertorriquenisima is Connecticut’s leading Spanish radio station, featuring music, news and community oriented programming. The station reaches more than 300,000 Hispanics living in Connecticut and Massachusetts.
