Michael Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, have been going through an incredibly difficult time after it was revealed last month that their 3-year-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with liver cancer and would have to undergo four months of chemotherapy. However, there is a small glimmer of hope for the family this Christmas.
Noah has successfully completed the first stage of chemotherapy and can now spend time with his family at home instead of in hospital, The Mirror reports.
The family won’t be headed home to Vancouver (where their usual celebrations take place), but are expected to spend Christmas with loved ones in Los Angeles, California, where Noah has been receiving treatment. But it will still be a big family affair because Lopilato’s brother, Darío, and her father, Eduardo, are set to travel from Argentina to Los Angeles to join the Bublé family and Lopilato’s mother, Beatriz (who has been by her daughter’s side for the last month).
Fans couldn’t be happier to hear of the Bublé family’s news, and have taken to social media to show their support.

According to The Mirror, an operation for Noah is planned for the end of next month. An Argentine news outlet said that Noah had “successfully finished the first stage of his treatment,” adding, “this is without doubt the best present for his parents and the relatives who have been helping them out since they learnt about his cancer diagnosis.”
