Former Home and Away and X Factor star Johnny Ruffo shares ‘heartfelt’ post sparking fan reaction

    Former Home and Away co-star Lynne McGranger was among the celebrities who reacted to the post.

    Johnny Ruffo just posted a tearful message about his mother Jill.

    The former Home and Away and X Factor contestant, who is presently battling stage four cancer, appeared next to his mother as she grabbed onto a sizable arrangement of flowers in an update posted on Instagram.

    Happy Mother’s Day! Please know how much I love and appreciate you, you mean the world to me, xx,” Ruffo said on Sunday. “Sometimes I take for granted the things you do.”

    Ruffo also uploaded a picture of himself with Sims and his mother at Nick’s restaurant in Sydney’s Darling Harbour.

    Actress Lynne McGranger from Home and Away, host of The Morning Show Kylie Gillies, and his partner Tahnee Sims were among the commentators who added heart and flower emojis.

    “Beautiful photos and enjoy this beautiful day with your mum and Tahnee,” one fan wrote.

    “Beautiful heartfelt words! 💕💕💕,” another wrote.

    Ruffo confirmed last year that his brain cancer diagnosis was terminal, but said he was committed to battling the disease as best he could and to living life to the fullest.

    “I understand that the cancer is terminal, but you know, I’m going to do everything I can and I am currently doing everything I can to kick its a***,” he told 7Life last year.

    Ruffo uploaded a snapshot of himself posing with what appeared to be a delectable birthday dessert on March 8 in honor of his 35th birthday.

    The former X Factor contestant celebrated his birthday in grand style by treating his loved ones to lunch at Nobu in Crown Sydney.

    He wrote, “35 and sure feeling it!!!”

    Thanks to the sun for another trip around the earth.

    “I appreciate all the birthday wishes,” said the speaker.

    Sims also posted a video update with clips from their most recent videos to when they first met in 2015.

    In reaction to his partner’s thoughtful act, the singer said, “Thank you for all the amazing memories, babe xx.”

    A week after Ruffo offered an update on his treatment, there was a celebration.

    He stated that he was receiving more chemotherapy while “back in my favorite chair.”

    “I hate this chair” and “f*** cancer” were further hashtags he used.

    In an update from September 2022, the singer had previously described chemotherapy sessions as “not fun.”

    “I feel f***ing awful. Just walking up a flight of stairs always leaves me exhausted, he exclusively admitted to 7Life.

    “By the time I reach the summit, all I want to do is sleep.”

    When asked about his plans for the coming year, Ruffo stated that he wanted to continue making music, look into acting, and present.

    Just what I was doing before, he said.

    “I felt like I was just kicking goals and I just couldn’t miss, and then all of a sudden the roof came crashing down,” he says of his 2017 diagnosis.

    “I mean, I was like ‘goddammit’. Everything just came to a grinding halt.

    “And it was going so well – I felt as though everything that I wanted to achieve, I was achieving.

    “Everything was just going in the right direction for me, so I kind of want to take up where I left off.”
