In a shocking announcement, Michael Buble & his wife Luisana revealed last week that their precious 3-year-old son Noah has been diagnosed with cancer! While not many details were released at the time, little Noah is reportedly suffering from liver cancer and has already begun intense treatment. Get all the new details here.
Michael Buble, 41, and his wife Luisana Lopilato‘s, 29, oldest child, son Noah, 3, has liver cancer, according to Gente, an Argentinian magazine. The couple announced the horrific news via social media on Nov. 4, just days after LA doctors confirmed their son’s diagnosis following a liver biopsy. The family traveled to LA for further examination after taking Noah to a clinic in Buenos Aires, Argentina with what they thought was a case of the mumps.
Michael and Luisana wasted no time in getting little Noah help as he has reportedly already started his chemotherapy treatment that will last for four months. But the silver lining through all of this is that although the toddler will need extensive need chemo, and maybe even surgery afterwards to remove the tumor, his chances of surviving the cancer are 90 percent.
“Cancer is a horrible illness but we have faith in Noah being able to overcome this,” Luisana’s elder sister Daniela told the magazine on Nov. 8. “We know he will. The time to start a long and very difficult treatment has come, but it’s got to be done… They say children are normally strong to put up with chemotherapy and my nephew is a warrior.”
The liver cancer diagnosis was discovered after doctors in Argentina told Lusiana that Noah had a “stain” on his liver. She had reportedly taken him to the hospital with a high fever, and when they couldn’t pinpoint what was wrong, they ran a series of tests. It was then the family flew to LA to get a second opinion on their son’s health condition.
They received the heartbreaking news on Nov. 1, according to the publication. “We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US,” a statement released by the Buble family on Nov. 4 read. “We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”
Michael, who also has a 10-month-old son named Elias with Lusiana, has already dropped out of his planned performance at the BBC Music Awards in London’s ExCel conference centre on Dec. 12. He cancelled the appearance on Nov. 8. “He has the innocence of children and that is good. He doesn’t understand too much what is happening,” Daniela said of her nephew. Our thoughts are with the entire Buble family during this difficult time.
