In 2015, Pau Donés was diagnosed with colon cancer. He passed away at age 53.
The Spanish singer Pau Donés, known for being the vocalist of the band "Jarabe de Palo", has died at the age of 53, a victim of colon cancer diagnosed in 2015.
Although he never gave up and always kept optimism and hope alive, the interpreter of "La Flaca" has finally been defeated by "El Cangrejo", as he called his illness.
He underwent surgery several times, but the cancer always came back in another part of his body.
“My case generates scientific curiosity. I am a rare patient. I should be dead because I have a very active oncogene. I have already been through three operations although it has never been reproduced in the same place, ” he said in one of his last interviews offered to the newspaper " El Periódico ".
But cancer did not stop him from continuing to do what he loved. Recently, Pau Donés released a new album with Jarabe de Palo titled "Tragas o escupes".
"It is the way I have to thank you for the generosity that you have shown me, and that it has always been much more than I really deserved," he said in a statement for the launch of his new musical work.
