Rob Delaney's 2-year-old son, Henry, has passed away. The comedian and Catastrophe actor shared the heartbreaking news in a Facebook post on Feb. 9. "I have very sad news. My two and a half year year old son Henry has passed away," Rob wrote. "Henry had been diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2016, shortly after his first birthday, following persistent vomiting and weight loss. He had surgery to remove the tumour and further treatment through the early part of 2017. Then the cancer returned last autumn and he died in January."
Our hearts go out to Rob and his family, including his wife and Henry's two older brothers. "They are why I will endeavour to not go mad with grief," Rob wrote. The actor also thanked the nurses, home carers, and charity workers who helped the family during Henry's illness and encouraged people to donate to UK-based organizations Rainbow Trust and Noah's Ark Children's Hospice if they feel inclined.
