Last week, Michael Buble broke the heartbreaking news that his three-year-old son, Noah, is battling cancer.

Explaining why he and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, were cancelling all of their upcoming work commitments, the star asked for privacy so that he and his family could take the time needed to focus on Noah’s health.

The exact type of cancer was not revealed, and Luisana’s sister later confirmed that he wasn’t suffering from leukaemia, with it now being reported that Noah has been diagnosed with cancer of the liver.

It is believed that Noah had a liver biopsy after having an initial check-up at a clinic in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with Luisana taking her son to the consultation due to his high fever.

Argentine magazine, Gente, reports: “She took her son to the Otamendi Miroli Hospital in Buenos Aires because he had a high fever.

“After an exhaustive examination, they ruled out mumps and suggested two possibilities, a throat infection or mononucleosis.

“To rule out the second possibility they had to carry out a battery of tests which included an abdominal ultrasound. On October 27, after a throat swab, they confirmed he had a throat infection and not mononucleosis but the ultrasound had detected a liver problem.

“The doctors told Luisana, ‘He has a stain on his liver, but it’s not got different tones and therefore it’s probably benign but we have to continue with the tests.'”

Michael, who was in London at the time, then reportedly urged Luisana to seek a second opinion in Los Angeles, with the family flying to the US to see another doctor.

Speaking to Gente, Luisana’s sister, Daniela, explained: “It was there they discovered something wasn’t right. We have very good specialists but for personal and family reasons, Michael and my sister decided to fly to the States.”

Daniela continued: “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.”

It is believed that Noah has begun a four-month course of chemotherapy but he may also need surgery to remove the tumour.

Thankfully, Noah is thought to have a 90% chance of beating the disease.
