Terrible news to report today: Latin pop star and producer Robi Draco Rosa has just been diagnosed with cancer.

His manager, Angelo Medina, released a statement today that Draco Rosa, 41, has been suffering with various health ailments for the past several months. After undergoing several exams, doctors discovered he had a cancerous tumor in the abdomen near his liver.
<P>
Rosa began his musical career in 1984 as a member of Menudo. The GRAMMY award winning artist also helped catapult Ricky Martin's crossover career in the U.S. by writing and producing "Livin' la Vida Loca" and "She Bangs." He is said to be undergoing treatments in Houston, Texas.

Robi, I remember you from menudo, I was a fan back in the days, I was very sad to hear that news., I am a born again.. meaning  I have recieved the lord Jesus christ in my life. I have invited him in my life to be my lord and savior. I believe in miracles and have seen them. I wish you can use your talents and music for the lord. live for him now and see how he will heal you. I wish you well!!!!!! I will have you in prayers.... be strong dont doubt. The bible says if you have faith as a size of a mustard seed you can say to this mountain move and it will move.... May GOd be with you and protect and Guide you to his truth....

Robby Rosa was my classmate and a friend of mine from wayback at St. Mary's in Long Island, NY and I wish him will with successful surgery and recovery. I miss my boy a lot until he wrote and produced You're Perfect for my group, ODYSY which is a blessing to me. We was talking about the oldin' from the school we used to go to 'til the Menudo days and he he's still a great friend. I love you, Robi. And thanks for the memories.

What a horrible thing to hear.  I wish Robi a speedy recovery.  God has placed this amazing artist in our world to be around for a while.  I lived in PR for about 2 years and was introduced to his music back in 98.  I have recently met a wonderful woman and mentioned Robi's name and how much I enjoyed his music.  I had purchased the cd way back but have since lost it.  She found a used copy (songbirds n roosters) so now I get to hear it on demand.  I will be playing Sunshine @ my wedding soon.  I hope that this amazning man beats the hell out of his cancer.  best wishes my friend.. Get it beat bro!

Espero que se recupere muy pronto. Su persona siempre me a llamado la atención, eres un excelente cantante, poeta y compositor. Pero tiene mas que eso...la raiz,el sueño, vida, alta o baja. El poder encontrar ese sabor o esencia de la vida. Me entere de la noticia recientemente. Mis mejores deseos para usted y familia. Fortaleza.........y mucho amor. No importa "que" el sentir y ser sentido es la mejor medicina para cualquier parte fisica o mental del ser humano. Dios lo bendiga.
