Ruffo was first diagnosed with brain cancer in 2017 before going into remission in 2019.

Sadly, the cancer returned in 2020 and in August 2022, Ruffo shared the heartbreaking news that his diagnosis was terminal.

“At some point it will get me”, Ruffo told The Project last year in wake of his new terminal diagnosis.

The former X-Factor contestant has since been keeping his social media following up to date with his health journey and has assured that he is “still fighting, still kicking on”.

In March, Ruffo revealed in a post to Instagram that he had begun undergoing another round of chemotherapy.
