Cancer has likely effected someone you know, but could you imagine it being a diagnosis for your child? This was a reality for singer Michael Bublé, whose son, Noah, was diagnosed at the age of three with liver cancer.

In a recent interview with The Late Late Show host James Cordon on an episode of Carpool Karaoke, Bublé opened up about what his family went through and how Jesus Christ was their strength.

Bublé told the British show host, “We all moved and we lived at [Children’s Hospital Los Angeles] and we just had the best doctors and, God, thank you, Jesus Christ, God.”

Bublé said that that time in his life was hard to talk about saying, “We got the diagnosis and that was it man, my life ended.” Doctors had originally told the family that it didn’t look good. The family decided to take it “day by day”, and stayed at the hospital for the duration of Noah’s treatment.

Buble’s wife, Luisana broke her silence five months into the initial diagnosis during a press conference, also crediting God for her family’s strength.

“My faith in the fact God had a miracle helped me. I became strong so my son would get better. I transmitted that to all my friends and family,” the thankful mother said. She continued by asking for prayers and saying, “we will win this battle, God willing.”

God was willing, and Noah is now in remission.

“I’m not OK,” Bublé told late-night host James Cordon. “My wife and I, when this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive. And when they got [the cancer] out, and the chemo was done, and they said, ‘We did it, it’s good, he’s OK,’ I fell. I just fell. My wife picks me up now.”

The family has an incredible bond for going through such hardships. His fans continue to pray for the family, and it’s a blessing that God was able to help what could have been a much more tragic situation.
