Mexican telenovela actress Lorena Rojas died Monday at her home in Miami after a long battle with metastasized breat cancer. She was 44.

Her death was confirmed to CNN by her talent management agency Latin WE.

Rojas was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and in 2013 the tumor metastasized to others parts of her body, according to the Mexican state news Agency Notimex. The news agency said the tumor continued to spread to her liver.

Rojas had appeared on several international soap operas, including "El Cuerpo del Deseo," "Pecados Ajenos," "Alcanzar Una Estrella" and "Demente Criminal," according to USA Today. She was living with her boyfriend, Spanish businessman Jorge Monjes, when she adopted a little girl in 2013.

USA Today noted that Rojas sent her last Twitter post two weeks ago on her 44th birthday writing in Spanish, "Thank you all for celebrating my birthday with me. Beautiful day."


Fans expressed their condolences on Twitter as well.
