Rob Delaney, the star of the Amazon series ‘Catastrophe,’ which aired for three seasons, announced Friday tragic news that has rocked him and his wife and sons.
Henry, his two-year-old son, has passed away. Henry had been battling brain cancer since its diagnosis in 2016, shortly after his first birthday. Although he had surgery and received treatment through the early part of 2017, the cancer returned later in the year. Henry died in January.
“My wife and Henry’s older brothers and I are devastated of course,” he wrote on his Facebook post. “Henry was a joy. He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he’d moved home following fifteen months living in hospitals,” he said, according to CNN.
The tumor and surgeries so affected Henry that he was left with “significant physical disabilities,” and had to use sign language in order to communicate, said Delaney.
“I am desperately said right now, but I can say with authority that there is good in the world,” wrote Delaney, adding, “His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound.”
For those who wish to offer donations to the family, Delaney has asked that they be directed to Rainbow Trust or Noah’s Ark, two organizations that provide support to families with sick children.
Delaney shared the source of his strength with his fans. His strength comes In large part from his wife and sons.
“I am astonished by the love-in-action displayed by Henry’s mom and his brothers,” Delaney wrote. “They are why I will endeavor to not go mad with grief. I don’t want to miss out on their beautiful lives.”
Please pray for Rob Delaney and his family during this terrible time of grief. In recent news, Joanna Gaines revealed the lengths she’d go to satisfy her pregnancy cravings.
