Johnny Ruffo's Emotional Update Following Cancer Diagnosis
Johnny Ruffo has made an emotional tribute to the medical team who are helping him fight a rare form of brain cancer.
The former X-Factor contestant took to Instagram to share a photo of himself and the team, saying 'These guys are the real stars, my amazing radio therapy team.'
Ruffo is currently undergoing radiation treatment after being diagnosed with brain cancer in August.
He has revealed that he went to hospital with a painful migraine, but doctors soon discovered a tumour causing pressure to the brain.
Surgeons operated but were only able to remove 95 per cent of the tumour meaning Ruffo has to endure a grueling six week regime of radiotherapy, and then six months of chemotherapy.
