The family quickly discovered that it was not a routine visit and that Zen had a fluid building in his head and it was a malignant tumor. The baby had brain surgery and a shunt to drain the fluid. Cannon shared that things took a turn for the worse at Thanksgiving.
“This weekend I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen. We woke up on Sunday and went to the ocean with him and Alyssa and then I had to fly back to New York for the show,” he shared, breaking down in tears. “I got a call on my way to the airport to head back to Zen.”
Cannon then tearfully shared that he held his son for the last time this weekend. “You can’t heal until you feel,” he told the audience, adding that he’s at work so soon after because this is all he knows, calling the episode a “celebration of life” for Zen.
