In a recent episode Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, Bublé appeared in a special Stand Up to Cancer episode. Bublé talked about his now 5 year old son, who has been declared cancer free.
He told Corden, “It’s so hard to have to acknowledge it, because it’s so painful” and went on to say, “We got the diagnosis, and that was it man, my whole life ended” He was brought to tears talking about his son, “It’s too hard to talk about man,” the singer said, struggling at first to talk about it.
Bublé told Corden that during treatment, he was the one to stay strong for his family, but after learning that Noah was alright, he fell apart. “I’m not OK,” he admitted.
“My wife, honestly, 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.
At the end of the episode Bublé urges viewers to make a donation to Stand Up To Cancer. Bublé says that although his son Noah loves super heroes like Spiderman, he tells him that, “they’re fake, they’re not real. You are a super hero, you are my hero, my real super hero.”
We are glad that his son has made a full recovery. Check out the full video below of the episode of Carpool Karaoke.
