Johnny Ruffo has given an update on his battle with brain cancer, revealing he’s “still fighting” the disease five years since he was diagnosed.

“Exactly 5 years to the day since my diagnosis. Still fighting this son of a b–ch 💪🏽💜🧠 #f–kcancer Thanks for all the support!” he wrote.

Ruffo’s last update came six months ago when he shared his experiences with radiation after being diagnosed with cancer for a second time.

The former X Factor contestant was diagnosed with cancer in 2017 after doctors found a seven-centimetre tumour in his brain.

He underwent an 11-hour surgery to remove the growth, and faced a 20 per cent chance of death.

That experience was followed by draining rounds of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and marked a point for Ruffo when “everything came crashing down”.

His shining light through it all has been his family and, of course, his girlfriend Tahnee Sims. The pair reportedly met in a dance studio in 2015.

Even when Ruffo received the news in 2020 that his cancer had returned, Sims was by his side.

The news came after the actor, who had then appeared as a regular character on Home and Away and restarted his singing career, started to forget the lyrics to songs and suffered 11 seizures in just four days.

Under his recent post, Sims shared a sweet comment: “Superstar xx,” she wrote.

Ruffo is set to release a tell-all memoir on August 30, titled No Finish Line: The Johnny Ruffo Story, where he’ll share with fans all of the ins and outs of his cancer journey.
