The success of singer Michael Bublé’s young son’s battle against cancer has been described by his family as a “miracle from God”.
The singing sensation and his Argentinian wife Luisana Lopilato, were devastated when three-year-old Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer following a biopsy at a clinic in Buenos Aires last year.
Noah began chemotherapy treatment in the US in a bid to shrink the tumour and his parents put their careers ‘on hold’ to devote time to his recovery.
Bublé cancelled his hosting gig at the BRIT Awards in London in February and recently announced he may pull out of the Juno Awards in his native Canada in April.
Last month the couple released a statement saying his son’s treatment “has been progressing well” and the doctors “are very optimistic about the future for our little boy”.
“We thank God for the strength he has given all of us. Our gratitude to his doctors and caretakers cannot be put into words. We’d like to thank the thousands of people that have sent their prayers and good wishes to us.
“As we continue this journey we are greatly comforted by your support and love.”
Noah’s uncle, Dario Lopilato, has told Argentinian newspaper La Nacion, “Noah is doing well, very well”. “I believe in God and sought comfort in Jesus Christ and a miracle from God came, from the way it was discovered, after the operation, everything,” he said.
Lopilato would not confirm reports about his other sister Daniela texting him with the message that “the cancer was gone”. He said any official announcement should come from Noah’s parents.
“I’d like my sister to be the one who recounts the details. But it was something that has united us a lot as a family. God exists,” he said.
Michael and Luisana are also parents to son Elias, who turned one in January.
