Brain cancer update by Johnny Ruffo, Home and Away actor and X Factor star, sparks outpouring of celebrity support

Well-wishes have been pouring in for Home and Away star Johnny Ruffo, who announced on Tuesday that his brain cancer has returned.

The singer, actor and TV presenter took to Instagram to share the devastating news, saying he was determined to beat “this s*** disease.”

Ruffo, 32, was first diagnosed with brain cancer in 2017 when it was revealed he had undergone surgery to remove a tumour after suffering from migraine.

In May last year, he declared that he was currently “clear of cancer,” but sadly the hiatus was not to last for long.

“After an unexpected week of seizures and excruciating headaches it is with a heavy heart that I have to let you know I now have another huge battle ahead of me as my brain cancer has returned, though I will dig deep and beat this s*** disease again,” he wrote in his Tuesday Instagram post.

“Yes you will. All my love to you Johnny,” fellow Home and Away star Georgie Parker quickly responded.

And she wasn’t the only celebrity friend to rally around the star.

“See you tomorrow my strong, sassy, politically incorrect warrior friend,” another Home and Away star Lynne McGranger added.

Musical mentor Guy Sebastian said the news was “unbelievably unfair.”

“You are such a light to us all,” he wrote.

“Your positivity and courage is seriously inspiring. Love ya.”

‘Johnny Ruffo strong’

“There is strong, then there is Johnny Ruffo strong,” Larry Emdur said.

“It’s like a superhuman strength, and it can beat any s*** that gets in its way … good luck man, stay strong.”

“We’re here for you brother and sending all the love and good vibes,” pop duo Jess & Matt wrote.

“You’re a warrior.”

“We’re all here for you buddy. Sending love,” radio presenter Michael “Wippa” Wipfli added.

Perth-born Ruffo rose to prominence after he came third in the 2011 version of X Factor Australia (Reece Maston won).
