Michael Bublé’s entire life changed in an instant when doctors gave his son Noah a grim diagnosis. But after a 3-year break, the popular crooner is in Dublin, Ireland kicking off his new tour. And while he was there, Michael Bublé spoke about his son’s cancer battle and how God used it for good.
In 2016, Michael and his wife, Luisana, received the kind of news every parent dreads. Doctors diagnosed their oldest son Noah with liver cancer at just 3 years old. Without hesitation, both Michael and Luisana put their careers on hold so Noah could start treatment right away.
“There is no decision to be made. You just do what you have to do for the family,” Michael recalls.
They broke the news on Facebook and the pair wrote in their post,
“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.”
The couple also asked all of their friends, family, and fans to pray for little Noah. And the outpouring of love that followed was bigger than anyone could've ever imagined!
Michael's fans rallied around the singer, overwhelming him and his family with all the love and support they needed. The family put their faith in God and the most amazing thing happened next.
Noah's cancer was gone! He was able to undergo surgery where doctors were able to remove the tumor completely.
Now, as Michael Bublé talks about his son’s cancer, he’s thanking his fans for standing by his side throughout the difficult time.
God used Noah’s health battle to give the star a brand new lease on life. He now recognizes what truly matters in life.
“The day that we got the diagnosis, it all came in one snap. My whole life changed and my perspective on life. . . and what matters. . . in one snap, changed,” Michael recalls. “And that’s a good thing. Because I’m thankful — I’m thankful for the grace. I’m thankful for the faith.”
And now, Michael treasures every moment with his loved ones. And he wants to use his own story to encourage others to fully rely on faith to see them through.
“I want other parents to know there’s hope,” he says. “And even when there’s not, somehow it’s going to be ok.”
And after a 3-year break from his career, the crooner is returning to the stage, hoping to give his fans the best music and concerts they’ve seen from him yet.
“People can say it isn’t a comeback, but man — I was gone,” Michael admits. “And I didn’t know if I would ever, ever come back.”
This is such an incredible story of faith, family, and miracles. I'll definitely be a fan of Michael Bublé from now on.
