Noah is expected to undergo the treatments for the next four months.
“Cancer is a horrible illness but we have faith in Noah being able to over come this,” Luisana’s older sister, Daniela, said. “We know he will. The time to start a long and very difficult treatment has come, but it’s got to be done.”
In October Luisana took her son to a hospital in Buenos Aires because he’d been suffering from a high fever. There, he underwent an ultrasound which revealed an irregularity with his liver.
Luisana and the singer, who also share 8-month-old Elias, revealed the sad news on Facebook earlier this month.
“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,” they wrote.
Days after the post Michael canceled his performance at the upcoming BBC Music Awards.
