Great news for Michael Buble and his family today! His 3-year-old son Noah is winning his battle with cancer.  Michael’s wife Luisana gave an update during a press conference for a movie she did while in Argentina.

She said, “Thank God, my son is well. I would like to thank people for their support, for the prayers they said, for their love, and I want them to know that they reached us and that it helped us a lot to come through this.” Michael and Luisana revealed Noah’s cancer diagnosis in November, and soon after that he started four months of chemotherapy.
