Michael Bublé’s son will be home for Christmas as he’s been deemed well enough to leave hospital.
Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer in November. He’s been receiving treatment in Los Angeles and there have been reports that he has been undergoing chemo and surgery to remove the tumour.
The family will be spending their Christmas in LA rather than Vancouver, Canada where they usually spend their holidays. However, Noah being at home and away from the hospital is cause for celebration in itself.
The Mirror quoted an Argentinian website, which said: “The youngster has successfully finished the first stage of his treatment.
“This is without doubt the best present for his parents and the relatives who have been helping them out since they learnt about his cancer diagnosis.
“To celebrate this good piece of news, the artists’ families will travel to the United States to spend Christmas with Noah and make it one of the most special Christmases they have had together.
“They’re all used to spending the festive season in Vancouver but this year they will be where Noah is.”
Michael’s sister-in-law, Daniela Lopilato, spoke to Argentinian magazine Gente around a month ago. She said: “If God wanted it to be discovered that way, it’s because he wants to save Noah. 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. They say children are normally strong to put up with chemotherapy and my nephew is a warrior.”
Michael and Luisana released a statement after finding out about Noah’s cancer, which read: “We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son, Noah, who is currently undergoing treatment in the US. 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.”
According to Macmillan, 82 percent of children with cancer survive thanks to new treatment methods and quicker diagnosis.
