While promoting her new film “Those Who Love, Hate” at a Buenos Aires press conference Monday, Luisana said (via People magazine), "It’s difficult for me to speak about this, it’s very recent and I’m still a bit sensitive about the subject. 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.”

She expressed her gratitude, sharing, "Thank God my son is well. 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.”

"Out of respect, I would like to thank people for their support, for the many prayers they said — for their love,” Luisana continued. “I would like them to know and tell them that everything reached me and that it helped us a lot to get through this. The love is daily, when people stop me in the street. It’s wonderful to know that you’re accompanied in life and that people love you.”

Luisiana also opened up on how religion helped her through the tough times, saying, "My faith in the fact God had a miracle helped me. I became strong so my son would get better. I transmitted that to all my friends and family.”

The 29-year-old took a break from shooting “Those Who Love, Hate” to focus on Noah’s health. She said, "Seeing Noah grow and being happy gave me the strength to return and finish this film. I’m very proud of the team that accompanied me during this time which were very difficult months for me and my family. Everyone accompanied me and not only did they show me they confided in me to work on the film, but they waited for me and put everything on hold. The show of love is incredible and something that I can’t put into words.”

Back in February, Michael and Luisana shared, "We are so grateful to report that our son Noah has been progressing well during his treatment and the doctors are very optimistic about the future for our little boy. He has been brave throughout and we continue to be inspired by his courage. We thank God for the strength he has given all of us.”

Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer after a biopsy was performed.
