“Why we didn’t want our child to go through chemotherapy,” Nick Cannon.

Nick Cannon has opened up about the months between learning that his son Zen had cancer and his death.

In an episode of The Checkup with Dr. David Agus, the Masked Singer host, 42, opened up about how they discovered their young son had brain cancer.

Cannon’s baby boy was “healthy, lively, and usually smiling” at first, but around two months old, he began to notice the baby’s “strange” breathing patterns.

“My greatest regret as a father of many children is that I don’t get to spend enough time with them, partly because I work nonstop and partly because I’m overburdened.”
