Michael Buble‘s wife Luisana Lopilatois speaking out about her son Noah, 3, and his cancer diagnosis.
The 30-year-old actress spoke about her son in an interview, saying he came down with an illness while she was filming in Argentina.
“After they did the ultrasound, they told me they found something in his belly,” she said. “They didn’t know what it was yet, or if it was a tumor, but that day I decided to take a flight [to the United States].”
Luisana and Michael had agreed if anything ever happened to one of their kids, they would fly to Los Angeles to receive care since it’s halfway between his family in Canada and hers in Argentina. Unfortunately, when doctors in Argentina found something in Noah’s belly in Argentina, Luisana could not get a hold of her husband because he was doing press work. She flew to Los Angeles with her kids to see another doctor.
“It was all from God — I don’t know how to explain it,” Luisana explained. “If we hadn’t done that ultrasound to find out if he had mononucleosis … it would have been so much worse….We did all the tests, and finally, we found out that it was what it was. These things, when they happen to you in life, they make you realize that the most important thing isn’t what you thought it was — it’s to have faith, to be strong.”
“There were nights I couldn’t sleep, that I prayed to God,” she continued. “Because it is a long process — but thank God the worst is over.”
“For any parent, it’s devastating to receive news like this. It was very heavy. We received all the prayers, all the calls. The only thing that got me through it was faith, from the very beginning,” she concluded.
