Luisana Lopilato is ready to talk about her son, Noah.
In a press conference in Argentina on Monday, Lopilato gave an update about her son’s health for the first time since he was diagnosed with cancer last year.
“It’s difficult for me to speak about this, it’s very recent and I’m still a bit sensitive about the subject,” Lopilato said in Spanish, according to The Daily Express. “My son’s recovery is a long process as you all know and he has to continue with checkups. But we are very happy. We are looking forward to thinking about the future, to seeing our children grow.”
“Thank God my son is well,” she said. “When things like those that happened to us occur, your take on life changes. Now I value life much more, the now and the today.”
Lopilato also took a moment to thank fans for their outpouring support since news of the diagnosis made headlines in November 2016.
“Out of respect, I would like to thank people for their support, for the many prayers they said […] for their love,” she said. “I would like them to know and tell them that everything reached me and that it helped us a lot to get through this.”
She said that her faith in God helped her find strength during this time.
“My faith in the fact God had a miracle helped me,” Lopilato said. “I became strong so my son would get better. I transmitted that to all my friends and family.”
