Michael Buble's Family Surprise For Cancer Stricken Son
Michael Buble’s sister Brandee has managed to treat her nephew to the toy of the year as he battles cancer.
Brandee said that it took her over an hour of driving to find a Hatchimal for Christmas.
The four-year-old boy was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and parents Michael and Luisa Lopilato have cancelled their work schedules to help him through it.
Sharing an image on Instagram with the hard-won Hatchimal, Brandee revealed the great lengths she went to for the present.
"Spent hours looking at every possible store that sold toys in Vancouver, got on waiting lists, only to find one on Craigslist, an hour away from where we live & twice the price...but we got Noah the Hatchimal that I promised him!" she wrote.
"Tia & Tio pulled through! And I think Mike may be more excited than he is! ''
Hatchimals are robot-like creatures that hatch out of an egg - but there's no knowing what you'll get until it decides to reveal itself.
It was revealed Noah was suffering from liver cancer two weeks ago after the family confirmed it wasn't leukaemia – which is cancer most associated with children.
Liver cancer has high survival rates, and Noah's proud parents have both said he's a "fighter".
"They are really sad but hopeful. They immediately got him very good care, and they are hoping and praying for the best," a friend of the family told Us Weekly.
"They are getting him the best doctors around. It's heartbreaking. This was a real shock, but they are doing everything they can.
"They're staying positive and Noah is a fighter."
