Celebrities have flooded social media with their words of support for Johnny Ruffo after it was revealed he was battling brain cancer.
The former Home And Away star took to Instagram on Thursday to share his devastating diagnosis, with many expressing their heartbreak at the news.
“You got every bit of love and support from my end mate,” penned fellow Summer Bay alum Jackson Heywood.
“You got this mate,” added Survivor star El Rowland.
The 29-year-old’s former co-star Jake Speer also offered his words of encouragement.
“Sending you lots of love mate. You need anything at all, anytime, you give me a call! Stay strong mate,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, X-Factor's Taylor Henderson couldn’t believe what he was reading.
“It’s just not sinking in,” he said.
“We’re all here for you Johnny and without a doubt… we’re all praying for you. Look after yourself big fella!”
In the post, Ruffo announced he would be undergoing “aggressive treatment” to fight the deadly disease.
“So I have the news,” he wrote.
“It was a bit of a shock and I’ve got an interesting journey ahead and a bit of a battle.”
“I am starting aggressive treatment for the next few months to fight the diagnosis of brain cancer. Please stay positive for me and I’ll try to update you guys on my progress.”
Last Thursday Ruffo disclosed that he had undergone surgery to have a mass removed from his head after initially being hospitalised with a migraine.
