The cancer-stricken 3-year-old son of Michael Bublé and Luisana Lopilato is doing "well" following treatment in Los Angeles, says Lopilato in the latest update on little Noah's condition.
"Thank God, my son is well," the actress said, speaking at a press conference Monday in her native Argentina. She said in Spanish that Noah has a long recovery ahead of him and that the experience has made her value life more.
Lopilato, 29, was in Buenos Aires to help promote her new film, Those Who Love, Hate.
Tengo la necesidad de multiplicar hasta el infinito mi agradecimiento ante tantas expresiones de amor. Desde que llegué a la Argentina no dejo de recibir demostraciones de cariño que me llegan a lo más profundo del corazón. Me siento bendecida y abrazada por la maravillosa energía que recibo a través de los buenos deseos y de la oraciones de tanta gente. Hoy quiero dedicarle un gracias de corazón a cada una de las personas que me dio fuerza cuando más la necesitaba. El amor de la gente es uno de los regalos más maravillosos que me ha dado mi profesión, es por eso que hoy más que nunca quiero decir GRACIAS. Gracias por acompañarme en el dolor, gracias por celebrar mi felicidad, gracias por ser parte de mi vida.
On Facebook and Instagram, she posted a heartfelt message of thanks to Argentines on Monday.
"Ever since I came to Argentina I keep receiving demonstrations of love that I get to the depths of the heart," she wrote. "I feel blessed and embraced by the amazing energy that I receive through the birthday wishes and the prayers of so many people. Today I want to dedicate a thank you from my heart to each of the people who gave me strength when I needed it most...Thanks for joining me in the pain, thank you for celebrating my happiness, thank you for being a part of my life."
The family last shared an update on Noah in February, when they said he was progressing well in his battle against the disease.
"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. We thank God for the strength he has given all of us," Bublé, the Canadian-born torch singer, said then in a statement on his social media accounts.
The family announced Noah's cancer in November but didn't reveal what type of cancer he has or when he was diagnosed.
The couple also has another son, Elias, who turned 1 earlier this year.
Bublé is a Grammy-winning singer whose albums include Come Fly with Me and Caught in the Act.
