In a moving Facebook post Friday, actor and comedian Rob Delaney announced the death of his 2-year-old son Henry, who according to the actor died in January from cancer.

Henry died of cancer after his intrepid fight with the disease for over a year. "I am desperately sad right now, but I can say with authority that there is good in this world", he said. The 41-year-old actor also revealed that Henry went in and out of the hospital for 15 months. "Henry had been determined to have a cerebrum tumor in 2016, not long after his first birthday celebration, following steady heaving and weight reduction".

After he was admitted to an NHS hospital, doctors discovered the tumour and Henry underwent surgery to remove it. He received surgery and treatment through the early part of 2017, but the cancer returned late previous year.

Rob Delaney's (right) son Henry died in January.

Rob is best known for his work on British show Catastrophe, alongside actress Sharon Horgan.

Delaney explained that while brain surgery left his son with "significant physical disabilities" he found his own ways to overcome them.

The Delaney family was devastated, to say the least, which was heartfelt and obvious in the actor's penned announcement.

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

"Henry was a joy". "He was smart, amusing mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he'd moved home following fifteen months living in hospitals ..."

He had been left with significant physical disabilities by the tumour, Delaney said, but had "quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his attractive little bum".

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

Delaney, who now lives in the United Kingdom, also cited the work of NHS nurses and doctors.

And he ended his tribute with a message to his adored son.

He also posted a link to the Rainbow Trust and Noah Ark - two charities working with seriously ill children - telling his fans that his family and he would be "in much worse shape" had it not been for them, adding that they could help other sick children by donating.
