Say a prayer for Nick Cannon and his family!
Actor, comedian, and talk show host Nick Cannon announced in a 10-minute segment on Tues., Dec. 7 that his five-month-old son, Zen, died of a brain tumor on Sunday.
Cannon told the story of his son’s death while holding back tears. Prior to the revelation, he described the joy his infant provided and how they discovered the tumor.
“He was always smiling and had the most beautiful spirit,” Cannon says. “When he was two months old, I noticed he was the cutest little boy with big eyes…and a nice-sized head.”
Cannon continued, saying he and his son’s mother, Alyssa Scott, noticed Zen had breathing and sinus issues. The doctor visits later discovered a malignant brain tumor. Zen then underwent brain surgery.
He said that throughout Zen’s illness, the family remained faithful and hopeful. However, the brain cancer escalated over the Thanksgiving holiday.
The 41-year-old father of seven says he has “so much faith in the Lord,” even while enduring this traumatic experience.
“I have so much faith in God. People were often telling me that I should pray for miracles, and I did pray for a miracle. I prayed for the miracle of God’s strength. That’s why I’m here with you guys today.”
“He puts the most and heaviest weight on the shoulders of his strongest soldiers,” Cannon continues. I’m here showing that I can fight through this.”
