Robi Draco Rosa is the latest celebrity to beat cancer. The 43-year-old musician/songwriter took to Twitter late last week to share the joyous news and announce that he is officially cancer free.
If you recall, the ex-Menudo star first announced he had cancer back in 2011. After multiple exams and visits to medical specialists in the U.S., the musician’s publicist Angelo Medina said a cancerous tumor was found in Draco Rosa’s stomach, near his liver. After the announcement, Draco Rosa underwent special treatment in Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas.
We are incredibly happy to know that the songwriter is cancer free – and hope he continues to enjoy his life to the fullest. In honor of Draco Rosa, we are highlighting him and other Latino stars and survivors who have beat cancer.
