Nick Cannon and Alyssa Scott announced a new foundation, Zen’s Light, honoring their baby boy Zen Cannon on his heavenly birthday.

Zen, who was born on June 23, 2021, passed away at five months old from a malignant brain tumor. 

Both Nick and Alyssa shared photos from a beautiful lighting ceremony on Zen’s birthday.

Nick shared: 

June 23rd will forever be a day of celebration. 

A beautiful lighting ceremony to honor the life of an Angel. 

Zen’s birth has now transformed into “Zen’s Light”. 

We are proud to announce his new foundation that will help so many others in this world. 

“Zen’s Light” mission is to foster global excellence in hope, grief-care, and pediatric healthcare for families and children in need. 

Thank you for everyone who joined us at this inaugural event, specifically the Children’s Hospital of Orange County and our other beautiful partners. 

Can’t wait for next year where our Lighting Gala will continue grow to help find a cure for pediatric Cancer, further research and help console more families during difficult times. 🙏🏾

Alyssa Scott shared a beautiful tribute video to her baby boy along with the caption: 

Happy heavenly birthday Zen. 

At the root of all the emotions I have today there is insurmountable love. 

I always try my best to remain positive but right now I can’t help but cry out “it’s not suppose to be like this”. 

In my mind I can see him smashing his cake and crawling around, tugging at my legs. 

But the reality is I will be the one to blow out his first candle. 

I will be wishing he was still here with us. GO REST HIGH 🤍

Happy Heavenly Birthday, Zen.
