Johnny mis­di­ag­nosed ‘I COULD’VE DIED IN MY SLEEP’

OK! (Australia) - - This Week -

‘Still a long road ahead but stay­ing pos­i­tive,’ former Home and Away star Johnny Ruffo shared with his In­sta­gram fans as he marked his fi­nal day of ra­dio­ther­apy to treat brain cancer. ‘Thank you to all the peo­ple that have treated me and made this an easy task for me.’

The pos­i­tive mile­stone in Johnny’s re­cov­ery comes two months after the shock di­ag­no­sis rocked the well-loved lar­rikin’s life. And the 29-year-old has shared the chill­ing story of how he came close to death when the ma­lig­nant tu­mour was mis­di­ag­nosed. ‘I’d even gone to the doc­tor, and the doc­tor said, “You know, all the symp­toms seem like de­pres­sion,”’ Johnny told The Project host Car­rie Bick­more in an in­ter­view.

Thank­fully, the ac­tor made the de­ci­sion to visit the hospi­tal – a move that medi­cos say saved his life. ‘The sur­geon said if I hadn’t gone to the hospi­tal that night I would have died in my sleep,’ Johnny re­veals. ‘It’s just sheer luck that I went in when I did.’
