Michael and Lu confirm son’s illness:
“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. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”

Last June, Noah was admitted to hospital in Argentina after being scalded with hot water. Shortly after the accident, Bublé let his fans know Noah was at home in the U.S. and was “happy and healthy.”
Reaction on social media has been pouring in for Noah to stay strong during this difficult time.
