A wave of shock and grief swept across the nation last week as beloved star Johnny Ruffo revealed the heartbreaking news his brain cancer had returned.

The former Home and Away star and talented singer battled the illness in 2017, and had since been given the all clear after multiple rounds of chemotherapy.

For the first time since the tragic news broke Johnny Ruffo’s partner, Tahnee Sims, who has been by his side throughout his cancer battle, has shared a touching post.

The simple yet sweet post collaged a series of cute black and white photos together.

How cute are these two?!


“What a superstar 💜,” Tahnee wrote alongside the pic.

She couldn’t be more accurate.

In a heartbreaking Instagram post last week, Johnny posted a picture of himself and Tahnee, writing: “After an unexpected week of seizures and excruciating headaches it is with a heavy heart that i have to let you know i now have another huge battle ahead of me as my brain cancer has returned.”

He added: “Though i will dig deep and beat this sht disease again 👊🏽💜 #fckcancer”

The post was flooded with support from fans and celebs alike, including Dan Ewing, Georgie Parker and Carrie Bickmore.

Johnny has often credited Tahnee for saving his life when he was first diagnosed with cancer three years ago, after she took him to hospital.

Johnny is forever grateful for Tahnee.


Despite facing so much hardship, the couple’s relationship has flourished.

“We just have fun. We make each other laugh so much. You know that gut-wrenching laugh with tears coming from your eyes?” he gushed in an interview to Now To Love.

“We argue and fight just like every other couple, but we make up too. We kiss and makeup you know?”
