Michael Buble praises wife Luisana Lopilato for being his strength in dealing with son's cancer diagnosis

Michael Buble admits that he has his wife to thank for helping him cope with things, especially after the couple found out about their son Noah's cancer diagnosis. Buble, who recently appeared on an episode of 'Carpool Karaoke' with 'The Late Late Show' host James Corden, opened up about his son’s cancer diagnosis. During the course of his conversation, Buble told host Corden that initially, he was the glue which was keeping the family from falling apart, but later, his wife Luisana Lopilato duly took charge and is now taking on the courageous role.
“When this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive,” the Grammy award-winning singer said. “When they got [the cancer] out and the chemo was done and they said, ‘We did it, it’s good, he’s okay,’ I fell, I just fell. My wife picks me up now.” It was a couple of years ago that Buble and Lopilato received the shattering news which said that their son Noah, who was only 3 years old at the time, had been diagnosed with liver cancer. Since then, Noah's condition has considerably improved, but his conscious dad still gets emotional talking about the experience.

“It’s so hard to have to acknowledge it because it’s so painful to talk about,” he explained to Corden in the episode. “We got the diagnosis and that was it, man, my whole life ended.” Further along in his talk, Buble credited the doctors at the Children Hospital of Los Angeles, as well as his relatives and in-laws for their support during the family’s trying time. “It’s funny, I know he’s [Noah] 5 years old and I say to him — cause he loves Spider-Man, we love Spider-Man — And I always say to him, ‘Spider-Man’s amazing, Superman’s amazing, but they’re fake; they’re not real. You’re a superhero, you’re my hero, my real superhero,” a teary-eyed Bublé said of his son.

And the singer, before doing the final song on the episode, which had been a special episode for Stand Up to Cancer UK, urged viewers to call the charitable foundation and donate money to help find a cure for the disease. “There’s hope and treatments and there’s medicines that haven’t been discovered and will be discovered because of you,” he said. “You think you’re one little person who can’t change, but all of us can completely, completely make that huge difference. If you do it and you save just one little person, that’s it. That’s what life is, that’s all that this is. Simple.”
