A well-known American television personality, Nick Cannon, has lost his youngest kid, Zen, to brain cancer.
The father of seven, who revealed the news on his show with tears in his eyes, described how he and his family realized Zen was suffering from Hydrocephalus, a type of brain cancer.
In his words ;
"I always noticed he had a cough, and so I wanted to check it out. He had this interesting breathing, and by the time he was two months, I noticed he had this nice sized head too — a Cannon's head. We didn't think anything of it. But I wanted to take him to the doctor for his sinus and breathing. We thought it would be routine."
The family soon discovered it wasn't going to be a routine visit as Zen had a fluid building in his head, and it was a malignant tumour. The baby had brain surgery and a shunt to drain the fluid. Things, however, took a turn for the worse at Thanksgiving.
Cannon then broke down in tears as he said that he had held his son for the final time on Sunday.
According to reports, Zen was born to Cannon and Alyssa Scott in July.
Zen, Cannon's eighth kid, had been accumulating fluid in his brain, which was later discovered to be a cancerous tumour.
"This weekend, I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen. We woke up on Sunday and went to the ocean with him and Alyssa, and then I had to fly back to New York for the show," he shared, breaking down in tears.
"I got a call on my way to the airport to head back to Zen," he stated.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
