The uncle of Noah Bublé, the three-year-old son of Canadian crooner Michael Bublé, has said a "miracle from God came" and is slowly but surely healing the little boy of liver cancer.
The brother-in-law of Michael Bublé, Dario Lopilato, spoke to La Nacion and shared an update on Noah's condition: "After these very long months Noah is doing well, very well," he said. "For me it's very difficult to talk about it. But I believe in God and sought comfort in Jesus Christ and a miracle from God came, from the way it was discovered, after the operation, everything."
Dario, who is the brother of Bublé's wife Luisiana Lopilato, also revealed he regularly travels to LA to support his family as they deal with Noah's illness.
"I feel it's important to carry on accompanying. That's why I stop what I'm doing here every so often and travel there," he said. "When you look at the big picture, and someone has a serious problem, everything else seems less important. The important thing is that we're together and we're living through this as a family."
As reported, Bublé and Lopilato first broke the news of Noah's diagnosis in November. At the time, doctors confirmed that Noah was positive for liver cancer and would have to go through four months of chemotherapy and a surgery to remove the tumor. Thankfully, the little boy was given a 90 percent survival rate.
After the initial diagnosis, the couple said they were "devastated" and that they were giving up work commitments to concentrate on "helping Noah get well". To dedicate his time to his family, Michael Bublé pulled out of hosting both the 2017 Juno Awards and the Brit Awards.
Last month, the couple revealed that Noah "has been progressing well during his treatment and the doctors are very optimistic about the future for our little boy."
"He has been brave throughout and we continue to be inspired by his courage," they said in a statement. "We thank God for the strength he has given all of us. Our gratitude to his doctors and caretakers cannot be put into words."
They added: "We'd like to thank the thousands of people that have sent their prayers and good wishes to us. As we continue this journey we are greatly comforted by your support and love."
Luisana's eldest sister, told Argentinan magazine Gente shortly after confirmation by Noah's parents he had cancer: "If God wanted it to be discovered that way, it's because he wants to save Noah. Cancer is a horrible illness but we have faith in Noah being able to overcome this."
She added, "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."
