After four months of treatments and thousands of prayers, Michael Bublé released a statement mid-March that their three-year-old son, Noah, is believed to be recovering from liver cancer.
Bublé’s brother-in-law, actor Dario Lopilato, reported that Noah was on the up-swing and that his wonderful health improvement was a “miracle from God.”
However, Noah still had a ways to go before he was 100 percent in the cancer clear.
The singer first broke the news about his toddler’s diagnosis back in November, and the family immediately dropped everything to get him kicking cancer’s butt.
“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son, Noah,” Buble wrote on Facebook upon receiving the news. “We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. 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.”
The whole family took Noah’s diagnosis very hard, and People Magazine confirmed that Bublé would not be singing again until his son is well.
Well, in a press conference on April 10, Bublé’s wife, Luisana Lopilato, confirmed the glowing news that everyone had been waiting to hear—and it has finally given them a reason to SING. Luisana spoke to her native country of Argentina with gushing pride and gratitude about her brave son’s full recovery:
“Thank God, my son is well. When things like those that happened to us occur, your take on life changes. It happened to us. Now I value life much more, the now and the today. I would like to thank people for their support, for the prayers they said, for their love, and I want them to know that they reached us and that it helped us a lot to come through this.”
Noah’s clean bill of health has been the Godsend the Bublés have been waiting to hear for six months now.
But while they are eternally grateful for the cancer-free confirmation from doctors and the answer to prayer, they are still sober-minded about the challenges their little man may have to come.
“My son’s recovery is a long process, as you all know, and he has to continue with check-ups,” said Lopilato. “But we are very happy. We are looking forward to thinking about the future, to seeing our children grow.”
She added that they were still “sensitive” about it, as the news from Noah’s doctors was received very recently, but they are finding great comfort from the thoughts and prayers of their adoring fans.
“The love is daily, when people stop me in the street,” she said. “It’s wonderful to know that you’re accompanied in life and that people love you.”
Lopilato continued that it was her faith in God as her comforter and miracle worker that got her through the heart-wrenching time:
