Devastating news broke on Friday that Michael Bublé and Luisana Lopilato’s three-year-old son Noah has been diagnosed with cancer.

Someone who is all too familiar with the dreaded ‘c’ word is Shannen Doherty, 45, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2015, and in September announced she was ‘nearly finished’ with her chemotherapy.

Speaking from experience, Shannen says that Michael and his family have to ‘stay positive’ as ‘that positivity, that outlook on life that you can get through something, it actually does get you through’.

She adds, ‘Just trust in your doctors. Make sure you have amazing doctors, a great team, and know that organisations like the American Cancer Society [and] Stand Up to Cancer, they are doing so much good for cancer. And [there is] so much research that we have much better chances now.’

Michael, 41, revealed on Friday that he would be putting his career on hold and both parents will be taking time off to care for Noah. ‘At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy,’ he said.

We’re sending all our love and prayers to Noah and his family during this challenging time.
