Michael Bublé Steps down from Hosting 2017 JUNO AWARDS, to Focus on Son’s Health


For the second time this year, Michael Bublé has withdrawn from a prior commitment in order to “focus on his family” amid his 3-year old son’s cancer battle.

According to a statement issued by Bell Media, the 41-year old entertainer has pulled out of hosting Canada’s biggest music awards show, the Juno Awards, that is scheduled to be held on April 2.

Iconic rocker Bryan Adams and megastar comedian Russell Peters are set to take the stage as co-hosts.

The Little Fighters Cancer Trust joins in the rest of the world in taking its hat off to Michael for doing the right thing and putting his focus on his family and his son’s battle with cancer as we more than most realise that when a  child has cancer the whole family is affected and the one thing that child needs  most is the support of loving parents.

“Our thoughts continue to be with Michael — we respect his ongoing commitment to his family and look forward to working with him again in the future,” the statement reads.

 

In early November, Michael and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, revealed their son Noah’s cancer diagnosis and shared that he was undergoing cancer treatment in the United States.

We’ve always talked a lot about the importance of the family and the love we have for our children. Katie and I are going to spend all our time and attention to help Noah to get better, by suspending our professional activities for now,” Buble wrote.

“During this difficult time, we ask that you pray for him and please respect our privacy. We have a long road ahead of us and we hope that with the support of our family, friends, fans around the world and our faith in God, we can win this battle.”

In early February, the family posted an emotional update, saying:

“We are very grateful to report that our son Noah has been evolving favourably during your treatment, and doctors are very optimistic about the future of our little boy. He has been brave at all times and we continue to be inspired by your courage.”

About LFCT

This is a blog about CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
