Nick Cannon just addressed a heartbreaking subject. You can check out the latest about this in the post that The Shade Room shared below.
TSR notes that ‘Last week #NickCannon shared the shocking news that his 5-month-old son #ZenScottCannon passed away after battling brain cancer. He has been open about his loss on his talk show. Now he has opened up to @People about the heartbreaking situation, as he talks about his son’s final days, the decision-making that went into treating his son, and more.’
TSR continued and revealed that ‘As previously reported, at 2-months-old, Zen was diagnosed with high-grade glioma, a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer. Around Thanksgiving, things took a turn for the worse as the tumor in Zen’s head started to grow at a faster pace. Nick previously mentioned that doctors placed a shunt in his skull to drain access fluid and to alleviate pressure. There were discussions about different treatment options, including chemotherapy. However, Nick and #AlyssaScott decided on no further invasive procedures as they worked on keeping their son “as happy as he could possibly be.”‘

As TSR notes, Nick said, ‘We were having quality-of -life conversations. We could have had that existence where he would’ve had to live in the hospital, hooked up to machines, for the rest of the time. From someone who’s had to deal with chemotherapy before, I know that pain. To see that happen to a 2-month-old, I didn’t want that. I didn’t want him to suffer.’
Instead, Nick and Alyssa focused on making their son happy.
Someone said: ‘It’s easy to say what you would’ve done while you’re on the sidelines. Unless you’re really in it, you don’t know what making these type of decisions are like.’
A follower said: ‘them surgeries probably wouldve killed the baby man, he was way too young.’
One other commenter posted this: ‘The hardest decision any parent would have to make. I pray for peace in his mind.’
Somoene else said: ‘I know that was one of the hardest decisions he had to make.’
Keep Nick and his family in your prayers.
