After months of treatment, Juanpi believed he had beaten the bone cancer that had deteriorated his body. However, in 2021, the disease returned with greater intensity, causing the amputation of one of his legs. Despite this, the influencer he remained calm, was grateful to be alive and continued with his medical process, hoping to heal again.
Just a few weeks ago, Juanpi announced that the disease had returned once again, metastasizing to his left lung and forming a brain tumor that had to be removed.
