On social media, Johnny Ruffo gave a short but upbeat update on his cancer campaign, saying he was still battling the good fight.
The singer and former Home and Away star gave a thumbs up in a photo posted to Facebook and Instagram as he sat in a hospital chair receiving treatment.
He said, I’ve been busy fighting the good fight.
Another stage of descending… On to the next.
It was his first Instagram post since his 33rd birthday on March 8, when he posed with girlfriend Tahnee Sims and called her a amazing kid.
It was also Ruffo’s first Facebook post since February 21, when he was photographed with Lynne McGranger, who plays Irene Roberts on Home and Away.
He captioned the photo, Always a pleasure catching up with this beautiful lady.
In November of last year, Ruffo revealed that his brain cancer had returned for the second time.
It is with a heavy heart that I have to let you know that after an unexpected week of seizures and debilitating headaches, I now have another massive fight ahead of me as my brain cancer has returned, he posted on Instagram on November 24.
I’m going to battle this s*** disease with all I’ve got.
Since then, he’s shared numerous updates, often with Sims, who was with him when he received his initial diagnosis.
Fans wished him well in his most recent tweet.
On Facebook, one supporter posted, Australia is right behind you matey.
Sending you all the courage and good vibes you’ll need to get through this.
You don’t have to be confident or fight; you can be scared or tired… cancer stinks and courage is overrated, one person wrote.
I’m also undergoing therapy. This is my third trip back to the Big C. One fan wrote, “Just keep the war going.
Ruffo announced in August 2017 that he had undergone surgery to treat a brain tumour.
When he was admitted to the hospital with a migraine, it was found.
In a May 2019 interview, he revealed that he was cancer-free.
Last year, he spoke about the people who helped him get through it.
Ruffo said on The Morning Show at the time, It’s about the support system around you and not being afraid to ask for help.
It has little to do with my cancer past.
Everyone goes through something difficult that they might believe is too difficult to deal with on their own.
And there’s still someone to console you when you’re going through these things.
