Beloved Aussie star Johnny Ruffo has taken to Instagram to reveal his brain cancer has returned.

“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 shit disease again…”, he captioned on his post.

It was only three years ago that Johnny had to go into emergency surgery to remove a 7cm tumour after suffering from a severe headache.

He woke up three days later with 27 staples on his forehead in what can only be the scariest moments of his life.


Our thoughts are with Ruffo and his family at this time, you’re incredibly strong and you can get through this!
