In November, Michael Bublé announced that his three-year-old son, Noah, has been diagnosed with cancer. While Noah was originally thought to just have mumps, it turned out to be a cancerous tumor.
Noah has already begun treatment in the United States, and will have surgery in December.
Understandably, the Bublé family is devastated by the news. David Foster, a composer, mentor, and close friend of Michael Bublé recently had this to say:
“I think Michael, right now, is in a huge bubble, as you would expect when this happens. Everything shuts down around you,” the composer told Entertainment Tonight Canada, later adding that Bublé “will not sing again until his child is well.”
In addition to Mr. Foster’s comments, the Bublé family issued a statement via social media:
“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US. 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 appreciates the outpouring of support via social media, they also wish to protect their privacy during this difficult time, asking fans to keep three-year-old Noah in their prayers.

Cancer can impact any one at any time
While we know that no one is immune to cancer and that it can strike any one at any time, it’s always a sobering reminder when you hear about a young child who is battling this dreadful condition. Our thoughts, prayers, and support go out to the Bublé family.
We also want to take this time to encourage anyone who has not been feeling well for any period of time to visit their doctor. It’s often no big deal, but in some cases not feeling well can be a sign of cancer or another serious illness.
