Home and Away star diagnosed with brain cancer


Johnny Ruffo has revealed that he has been diagnosed with brain cancer.

The Home and Away star, who rose to fame on the Australian version of The X Factor back in 2011, was forced to undergo emergency surgery to remove a brain tumour earlier this month, after he went to the doctor with a suspected migraine.

After his surgery, Johnny posted to Instagram and said that he was “hoping for a positive result”.

However, the actor, who played Chris Harrington in Home and Away, has since revealed that doctors confirmed a cancer diagnosis.

Some things in life really put things into persepective, hoping for a positive result, keep me in your thoughts x
