Understanding Liver Cancer & Noah Bublé’s Battle
Bublé and Lopilato’s eldest son, Noah, 8, was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016, and he was in remission by 2017. Liver cancer affects approximately 42,000 Americans per year, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS).
Several different types of liver cancer exist, and the most common is hepatocellular carcinoma. Symptoms of this disease may include abdominal pain, unexplained weight loss, decrease or loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, and jaundice.
Pediatric liver cancer, like Noah’s, is very rare. The most common type of pediatric liver cancer is hepatoblastoma, according to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Approximately 2-3 children out of 1 million will be diagnosed with the disease.
Coping With A Child’s Cancer Diagnosis
When your child is diagnosed with cancer it may seem that the dreams you had for your family are falling apart. It’s important – to the best of your ability – to try to keep a level head after you’ve fully felt all of your emotions around the diagnosis.
You’re not alone in this journey – your child’s oncologist and care team are there to guide you and provide information and answers. Oncological social workers are a fantastic resource to help you sort out the financial aspects of cancer treatment, as well as other cancer-related issues. Skilled psychologists and counselors can be accessed to help you maintain good mental health through your child’s cancer journey, to the best of your ability.
And, don’t be afraid to reach out to your support system – friends, relatives, etc. – for help through this process. No one expects you to handle everything on your own. Bublé has said in the past how having the support of others during Noah’s cancer battle made all the difference. “People will never understand how much it changed our lives when we were going through our darkest times; how much the prayers, how much the good will, how much the love we could feel coming [helped],” he says.
“We feel indebted to those people,” he reflects. “And I only hope I can bring people a tenth of the joy they brought me.”
