Singer Michael Buble and his wife of four years, Luisana Lopilato, have confirmed that their oldest son, Noah, has been diagnosed with cancer. Noah, who just turned three nine weeks ago, is an older brother and his parent's pride and joy.
The 41 year-old star said in a Facebook post Friday morning that the family is devastated by the sudden news of Noah's cancer, but he was quick to reaffirm their devotion to do everything in their power to help Noah and make it through this difficult time together.
In a Facebook post, Buble said, "We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well."

While the family asks for privacy during this hard time, they do welcome any and all prayers on their behalf. In her Facebook post announcing their tragedy to the world Luisana said, "We have a long road ahead of us and we hope that with the support of our family, friends, fans around the world and our faith in God, we can win this battle."
Hard times will inevitably hit us all. As the world's heart goes out to Michael Bublé and his little family you can't help but admire the dignity and love with which the family is handling such a delicate situation. They continue to emphasize the importance of faith, love and family in all things.
"I love them more than I'll ever love anything, or anyone in the whole universe," Bublé said about his family in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "I think it gave me perspective on life that I think I very badly needed. It's hard to be able to quantify that level of love. I didn't even know that there was that color in the spectrum. I didn't know that level of love existed. But it makes me better at everything."
Bublé and his wife, Luisana, an argentinian model, both said they are taking as much time out of their careers as necessary to see their son through this battle. The love this family has for eachother and God is strikingly displayed in everything they do as they enter this battle as a team. Bublé said they will make it through this time, "God willing."
Bublé and his family are an example of what to do in the face of adversity.Thanks for the example Michael and Noah, we wish you the best as this trial goes forward and hope that we can all #maintainperspective.
