Canadian singer Michael Bublé is well known for his smooth, silky voice and charismatic stage presence. But over the past few years, he’s understandably been focused on his family.
In 2019, the Bublé was shocked after learning that their young son Noah was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a type of liver cancer. Little Noah was only three-years-old when his family got the grave news.
Bublé and his wife, Argentinean actress Luisana Lopilato, put their careers on hold at once.
“Everyone understood in my world what my priority was,” Bublé told People. “We all go through things. You just hope you learn something about yourself and you learn something about the people with you.”
Thankfully, by February 2018, after enduring bouts of chemotherapy, Noah was reportedly “on the mend.” And last year, two years after his initial diagnosis, young Noah at the age of five went into remission following chemotherapy and surgery.
Bublé says his son’s battle with cancer changed him forever.
“You don’t go through big things in your life, dramatic things like I’ve gone through or my wife has gone through without it having an effect on you.”
“We all moved and we lived at [Children’s Hospital Los Angeles] and we just had the best doctors and, God, thank you, Jesus Christ.”
“I’m not OK. My wife and I, when this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive. And when they got [the cancer] out, and the chemo was done, and they said, ‘We did it, it’s good, he’s OK,’ I fell. I just fell.”
“My wife picks me up now,” he added.
The grateful dad tearfully went on to talk about Noah’s love for superheroes such as Spiderman and Superman.
“They’re fake,” he said. “They’re not real. You’re a superhero. You’re MY hero. A real superhero,” Bublé said to his son.
We wish Michael and his family all the best as they enjoy a new, brighter chapter in their lives after enduring such dark times. Please be sure to share this story with your friends and family.
