Comedian Rob Delaney's 2-year-old son dies after cancer battle

The actor described his son Henry as a'joy- smart funny and mischievous in a poignant and heart-breaking message

Henry had surgery and treatment to remove a brain tumour shortly after turning one in 2016 before the cancer returned last autumn.

He passed away in January and Rob thanked the NHS for looking after his son and praised his wife Leah and Henry's two older brothers who are six and five for staying strong.

His tumor and surgery left him with critical physical handicaps, yet he immediately learned communication through signing and built up his own strategy for getting from A to B rearranging on his delightful minimal bum.

"His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound", Delaney said.

He continued: "I am astonished by the love-in-action displayed by Henry's mom and his brothers".

The comedian, who stars in and co-writes the British series Catastrophe, said the strength of his wife and sons has prevented him from going "mad with grief" and that he doesn't want to miss out on "their lovely lives".

"Henry was a joy", Delaney wrote.

I am surprised by the affection in real life showed by Henry's mother and his siblings. "I'm voracious for more encounters with them". He goes on to thank nurses and doctors at England's National Heath Service, who he calls his "heroes until the day I die".

"I am desperately sad right now, but I can say with authority that there is good in this world".

Delaney, who stars in Amazon's Catastrophe and resides in the United Kingdom, urged people to donate to the Rainbow Trust or Noah's Ark to help sick British children.

He added a message to his departed son: "Thank you, attractive Henry, for spending as much time with us as you did".

Fans and friends of Delaney have been sending messages of condolence and sympathy to the actor and his family.

He at that point told perusers, "At last, I ask that you regard my family's security with respect to this issue. We miss you so much", Delaney ended the post.
