Puerto Rican singer Draco Rosa is cancer-free after more than 18 months of treatment, his representative, Angelo Medina, announced Wednesday.

“Today, after almost two years, we’re celebrating his complete recovery from this devastating illness,” Medina said.

Draco Rosa announced in April 2011 that he had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma near his liver and he began undergoing treatment in a specialized medical center.

Medina said that he was “really thrilled and proud to see the poise and courage with which Draco faced this disease.”

“Basically, two years have passed in which he grew as a human being and we’ve seen how this man, so full of feeling, has been like the best gladiator. He’s a warrior,” Medina emphasized.

The singer of “Esto es vida,” “Reza por mi,” “Frio,” “Vagabundo” and “Blanca mujer” and the composer of hits for Ricky Martin, will release his latest album - “Vida” - in February 2013.

The new album will include duets with artists such as Juanes, Shakira, Martin, Juan Luis Guerra, Alejandro Sanz, Ruben Blades, Andres Calamaro, Enrique Bunbury, Marc Anthony, Romeo, Jose Feliciano, Ednita Nazario, Tego Calderon, Calle 13 and Mana.
