Singer Michael Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, have added a special room to their house to help three-year-old son Noah's recovery from liver cancer.
According to the Mirror, the family is having a luxurious mansion built in Michael's Canadian hometown of Burnaby, which will sit directly opposite his old primary school. In addition to a special room for Noah, the house will have a heated swimming pool, a tennis court, an enormous garden and even an ice rink for the little boy and his younger brother, Elias, to enjoy.
"We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US," it read. "We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children."
The statement continued, "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."
A short time later, Bublé's sister-in-law confirmed that Noah will undergo chemotherapy to treat his illness.
"If God wanted it to be discovered that way, it's because he wants to save Noah," she said. "Cancer is a horrible illness but we have faith in Noah being able to overcome this.We know he will. The time to start a long and very difficult treatment has come but it's got to be done. They say children are normally strong to put up with chemotherapy and my nephew is a warrior."
Shortly before Noah's diagnosis, Bublé opened up about the joys of fatherhood and the overwhelming love he feels for his children while speaking with Entertainment Tonight: "I love them more than I'll ever love anything, or anyone in the whole universe. I think it gave me perspective on life that I think I very badly needed," he said. "It's hard to be able to quantify that level of love. I didn't even know that there was that color in the spectrum. I didn't know that level of love existed. But it makes me better at everything. It allows me to pull more emotion and be more honest and to be in the moment."
