Michael Bublé's young son has started the treatment that will hopefully shrink the tumor on his liver


Noah Bublé has finally started his cancer treatment.

The son of Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopiltato was diagnosed with liver cancer last month and has now started a treatment to hopefully shrink the tumor. This treatment will reportedly last until the end of the year.

The Daily Mail reports that doctors are hoping the tumor will shrink enough to operate on after he undergoes chemotherapy. Noah is reportedly scheduled to have surgery at the end of December.

The doctors will perform a biopsy before the operation and could also decide to extend the chemotherapy. He reportedly started chemo last month and is going to continue treatment for the next four months.

Since the diagnosis, Bublé has taken time off from his tour to focus on his family.

He confirmed the news on Facebook in November.

"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," the couple said in a statement.
