Michael Buble has recently halted his career to support his son, who recently was diagnosed with cancer. But the Canadian singer’s sister has bought little Noah the perfect gift to cheer him up this christmas.
Buble’s son Noah (3) was diagnosed after a liver biopsy in LA earlier this month. His chances of survival are high at 90% but he will require treatment in the US till 2017. Michael has given up his career to support his family through this hard-time.
His sister, who is a children’s book author, shared through social network site Instagram the toddler’s christmas gift, which has sold out across the US. For christmas this year auntie Brandee Buble is giving her nephew a ‘Hatchimal’, large plastic eggs with trainable baby bird. She wrote:
‘Spent hours looking at every possible store that sold toys in Vancouver, got on waiting lists, only to find one on Craigslist, an hour away from where we live & twice the price…but we got Noah the Hatchimal that I promised him!
‘Tia & Tio pulled through! And I think Mike may be more excited than he is! #family #westicktogether #crazytoyhype #imcomingwithpresents #hatchimals.’
Buble’s wife Luisana is reportedly equally devastated by the diagnosis. He older sister Daniela told Argentinian magazine Gente recently:
“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.”
The couple had previously confirmed Noah’s diagnosis in an emotional statement earlier in November on Facebook:
“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.”
