Michael Bublé got candid about his son’s cancer battle and how that affected his life. As fans know, it was two years ago that the star and his wife Luisana Lopilato shared the heartbreaking news that their boy Noah, had been diagnosed with the illness at the age of only 3.
On Lopilato’s Facebook page, the couple posted a joint announcement that read: ‘We’re devastated by the cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who’s currently receiving treatment in the US. Luisana and I are going to spend our time and our attention to help Noah get better, by suspending all of our professional activities for now.’
Fortunately, last year in April, they shared the great news that the child was well.
The mother stated: ‘Thank God, my son’s well. When things like these occur, your take on life changes. It happened to us. Now I really value life so much more, the now and today. I’d like to thank all people for their support, for the prayers they sent, their love, and I want them to know they reached us and that it helped a lot to go through this.’
During an interview on Australia’s TODAY Show, Buble opened up about the scary experience.
‘It sucked and it still sucks ’cause what we went through was THE worst possible thing you could hear as a parent and probably as a human. I much rather would have it been me. I wished, I wished it had been many times,’ the father shared.
He went on to explain that ‘There was a million times my wife and I were only surviving, struggling to survive and breathe and…more times than people can understand, some days we wished we did not wake up. When we did, we felt the love from people, we knew they were praying for us, we knew there was good out there.’
Obviously grateful and tearing up, Buble made it very clear that without the support he’s received, things would have been much worse.
Apparently, the prayers and support from fans ‘gave [them] faith in humanity.’
