Cannon recalled the moment he and his partner, model Alyssa Scott, were told that Zen had hydrocephalus – a build-up of fluid in the brain.
Before his son died, Cannon said they took him to the ocean and held his hand for a final time.
“You can’t heal until you feel,” he told the audience about such loss, drawing loud cheers. While friends, fans and others shared supportive messages online.
