Noah Was Diagnosed With Cancer - November 4, 2016
Hearts broke around the world when singer Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato announced that their elder son, 3-year-old Noah, was diagnosed with cancer.
Noah was reportedly diagnosed with liver cancer after a biopsy on Nov. 1, 2016. Bublé and family took Noah to doctors in Los Angeles for a second opinion, where an ultrasound found cancer. "If God wanted it to be discovered that way, it's because he wants to save Noah," the singer's sister-in-law, Daniela Lopilato, told Gente magazine. "Cancer is a horrible illness, but we have faith in Noah being able to overcome this. We know he will. The time to start a long and very difficult treatment has come, but it's got to be done." Us Weekly reported that Noah has already started chemotherapy, which he'll continue for about four months. The good news? The treatment reportedly gives him a 90 percent chance of beating the disease.
Daniela previously told an Argentinian TV station (via the U.K. Express) that speculation on Noah's diagnosis is not only distressing (noting the family is "broken in half" over the news) but also inaccurate. "Michael and my sister will publish more statements…" she said. "…The only thing I ask if that you don't speculate because not everyone has children and can understand what this means."
