Michael Bublé’s wife Luisana Lopilato has spoken out about her son Noah’s cancer treatment at a recent press conference in her native Argentina.
The Daily Mail reports that Luisana told the assembled audience that the subject was still difficult for her to address, but added that Noah was now ‘well’ and thanked wellwishers for the thoughts and prayers that they had sent the family.
‘Thank God, my son is well,’ she revealed. ‘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.’
‘It’s difficult for me to speak about this, it’s very recent and I’m still a bit sensitive about the subject. But the love is daily, when people stop me in the street. It’s wonderful to know that you’re accompanied in life and that people love you.’
‘My son’s recovery is a long process as you all know and he has to continue with check-ups,’ Luisana explained. ‘But we are very happy. We are looking forward to thinking about the future, to seeing our children grow.’
Of her latest work project, the film Those Who Love And Hate, she added: ‘Seeing Noah grow and being happy gave me the strength to return and finish this film. My faith in the fact God had a miracle helped me. I became strong so my son would get better. I transmitted that to all my friends and family.’
‘As a family we were always very united and we fought this together. We did everything we could for our son, so he would come through this.’
Noah, three, was diagnosed with cancer last November, and has been undergoing chemotherapy in Los Angeles.
The couple have cancelled a number of work engagements in order to support their son throughout his gruelling battle, including Michael’s role as host of the 2017 Brit Awards.
In a statement released in February, Michael said: ‘We are so grateful to report that our son Noah has been progressing well during his treatment and the doctors are very optimistic about the future for our little boy.’
‘He has been brave throughout, and we continue to be inspired by his courage.’
‘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.’
