In his fight against cancer, Johnny Ruffo has reached a significant milestone.
The musician posted numerous pictures on Instagram of himself and his partner Tahnee Sims receiving medical attention inside the hospital.
“Exactly 5 years to the day after my diagnosis,” the former Home and Away star wrote.
Fighting this son of a b-tch, #f—kcancer, still. Many thanks for your assistance.
The former Summer Bay family member’s tweet instantly received a tonne of support from other well-known figures.
Sending so much love to you, Johnny, Emily Symons wrote in the comments.
Love to you, mate,” Georgie Parker continued, and James Stewart wrote, “Fuck c—cer!
well done, Johnny!
Judge for the Masked Singer Dave Hughes also chimed in, writing: “Your grin inspires the world legend.”
“Luv ya mate,” said Morning Show host Larry Emdur. Punch on and destroy this, @johnny ruffo!
Tahnee, Johnny’s partner, also commemorated the day on her Instagram, posting a slideshow of images along with the message, “Five years on.” I am constantly in awe of you.
“There’s still a long way to go, but we’ve passed a significant milestone that was occasionally in doubt. Always thankful for you, Johnny Ruffo.
“5 years to the day and I’m still so happy for every day I get to spend with you,” the X Factor alum wrote in response to the homage.
Lynne McGranger, a close friend of the couple, expressed her support for Tahnee and Johnny by writing: “Love you guys.”
Johnny received his initial diagnosis of brain cancer in 2017 and later declared himself free of the condition in 2019.
But in November 2020, Johnny revealed the heartbreaking news that his cancer had come back in an Instagram post.
He added beside a picture of himself and Tahnee, “After an unexpected week of seizures and severe headaches it is with a heavy heart that I have to let you know I now have another enormous struggle ahead of me as my brain cancer has returned.”
“Though I will dig deep and overcome this sh*t disease again #f-ckcancer,” he continued.
The actor has since updated his followers on his battle with cancer.
In April this year, the artist stunned his supporters with an unexpected comeback to Dancing With The Stars: All Stars.
In an all-black outfit that included a top hat, suit, and tie, Johnny onto the dance floor with Masha Belash, who was wearing a lovely green dress.
Following their jazzy dance set to Domino’s song The Business of Love, the duo received a standing ovation.
“It was excellent and motivating. The judge praised him, saying, “It was so wonderful to see you back up there, you’re such a champion guy, we love you to bits.”
