Delaney wrote in a lengthy post,
I have very sad news. My 2½-year-old son Henry has passed away. Henry had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016, shortly after his first birthday, following persistent vomiting and weight loss.
Delaney wrote in the post that the toddler had undergone surgery to remove a tumor followed by further treatment throughout 2017. However, he said cancer returned in Autumn and Henry passed away in January.
Delaney further explained despite the surgery having left his son with several physical disabilities, he had found his own ways to overcome them. He said,
He quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his beautiful little bum. His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound.
Delaney also thanked all of the nurses and doctors who helped his family through all the difficulties and he added that they ''will be my heroes until the day I die.''
