Don Omar reveals that he is fighting cancer, but his tour does not stop

Puerto Rican singer William Omar Landrón Rivera, better known in the music scene as Don Omar, surprised his followers and colleagues by confessing on his Instagram account that “Today yes, but tomorrow I won’t have cancer.”

The publication was accompanied by a photograph of his arm in which a red bracelet appears that shows him as a patient at the Orlando Medical Center Unit. “Good intentions are well received. See you soon. #f-kcancer,” he completes his confession, although he does not point out what type of cancer he is suffering from.

“The most special thing about today’s auditions is seeing that there are people who want to dare to dream with me,” stated the message he published a couple of days ago.

“Thank you to each of you who gave your all on the dance floor! This second stage of the tour comes with everything,” the post added.
