It’s been a difficult year for Michael Bublé’s family. In October 2016, the singer’s 3-year-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with liver cancer.
The little boy has been undergoing treatment ever since.
Bublé and his family have kept relatively quiet about their little boy’s fight since announcing the terrible news in November.
But now, the singer’s wife is opening up about the “devastating” moment she found out that her son was ill.
According to People, Luisana Lopilato sat down with Argentinian TV host Susana Giménez for an exclusive interview and revealed new heartbreaking details about his struggle.
Lopilato, who has two children with Bublé, said that she was filming a movie in her native country of Argentina when her son suddenly fell ill. Doctors suspected that mononucleosis might be the cause and sent Noah to get an ultrasound.
They confirmed that the little boy indeed had the infection — but they also found something else.
“After they did the ultrasound, they told me they found something in his belly.
They didn’t know what it was yet, or if it was a tumor, but that day I decided to take a flight [to the United States].”
To make matters worse, Bublé was all the way in England promoting a new album, according to People.
And his wife was unable to get ahold of him.
But Lopilato didn’t want to waste any time. She flew to Los Angeles with Noah in order to seek medical help.
She now says that the ultrasound may have helped save her son’s life:
“It was all from God — I don’t know how to explain it.
If we hadn’t done that ultrasound to find out if he had mononucleosis … it would have been so much worse.”
After a series of painstaking tests, they received the heartbreaking news that Noah had cancer. She told Giménez:
“We did all the tests, and finally, we found out that it was what it was. These things, when they happen to you in life, they make you realize that the most important thing isn’t what you thought it was — it’s to have faith, to be strong.”
Noah has since undergone chemotherapy, and according to his mom, the little boy is on the mend.
“There were nights I couldn’t sleep, that I prayed to God. Because it is a long process — but thank God the worst is over.”
The mother of two also said that faith and family helped her handle the “devastating” situation.
And at the end of the day, she said that they ordeal has made them “stronger.”
