(Miami, FL - February 16th, 2015) - With great sadness we inform fans, colleagues and press members that Mexican actress and singer, Lorena Rojas, passed away today in Miami at 44 years of age, after facing a courageous battle against cancer.

Lorena, who bravely defeated the disease at different stages since being diagnosed in 2008, took her last breath peacefully in her home, surrounded by the love of her family, her boyfriend and her closest friends.

Lorena Rojas was one of the most beloved actresses and leaves behind a great legacy, with a brilliant artistic career where she stood out in internationally acclaimed Novelas such as "El Cuerpo del Deseo," "Pecados Ajenos," "Alcanzar Una Estrella" and her most recent project, the series "Demente Criminal." She also shined in the big screen with five movies and in theaters with "Manos Quietas" and "Aventurera." Besides her numerous roles as lead actress, Lorena was able to fulfill, not too long ago, her biggest musical dream as composer and singer of "Hijos del Sol." This children's CD was inspired by her daughter Luciana, who will now be living with her aunt, actress Mayra Rojas, and her adoptive father, just like Lorena had intended.

Following her family's wishes, LatinWE, who represented Lorena Rojas from 2007 until 2009, will continue to share any information that will be released on her behalf and asks that the privacy of her family members be respected in such difficult times.

Lorena takes a step into eternal life leaving as her greatest legacy the love for animals and for art in all its forms, her tender devotion to her daughter, her passion for life, the appreciation of all her Lobitas and fans who she loved until the end and her rejoice towards the most anticipated time of her day: a good, fun dinner with her family and friends who will love her forever.

Rest in peace Lorena Rojas, our courageous fighter. We will always remember you, just like you wanted, enjoying life, with your extraordinary adventurous smile.
