Michael Buble’s Wife Luisana Lopilato Shares Update on Son’s Cancer Battle
While promoting her new film, Those Who Love, Hate, Lopilato said that she and Buble are optimistic about the future of their family in spite of the uphill battle they’ve been fighting together.
“It’s difficult for me to speak about this, it’s very recent and I’m still a bit sensitive about the subject,” Lopilato said in Spanish, as translated by The Daily Express. “My son’s recovery is a long process as you all know and he has to continue with check-ups. But we are very happy. We are looking forward to thinking about the future, to seeing our children grow.”
“Thank God my son is well,” she continued. “When things like those that happened to us occur, your take on life changes. Now I value life much more, the now and the today.”
Lopilato thanked well-wishers for their support, love, and prayers. “I would like them to know and tell them that everything reached me and that it helped us a lot to get through this,” she said. “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.”
She also expressed gratitude to the cast and crew of Those Who Love, Hate for supporting her decision to take a break filming to focus on Noah’s treatment.
“Everyone accompanied me and not only did they show me they confided in me to work on the film, but they waited for me and put everything on hold,” she said. ” The show of love is incredible and something that I can’t put into words.”
The couple announced the news of Noah’s cancer diagnosis in a Facebook post last November.
“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the U.S.,” Buble and Lopilato wrote on Facebook. “We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children.”
In February 2017, the couple reported that Noah’s “been progressing well during his treatment” and that the doctors were “very optimistic” about his future.
