Johnny Ruffo thanks fans after brain tumour operation

Former Home and Away star Johnny Ruffo has thanked fans for their support after surgery for a brain tumour.

The actor and singer, who competed on the Australian version of The X Factor, is recovering from the operation after he went to hospital for a migraine.

He shared a picture of himself in a hat on Instagram with the caption: “Thank you to everyone for all the support over the last week, off to the docs with my mums, keeping positive.”

Last week Ruffo, 29, shared a picture of his head after the operation, in which a huge incision that has been stapled together along his hairline can be seen.

He also promised the Australian Football League team he supports in Melbourne that he would be back watching games before long.

When Essendon FC wrote a message of support on Twitter, Ruffo replied: “I’ll be back watching games before you know it, now let’s charge towards the finals.”

He previously told Daily Mail Australia: “I went into hospital with a migraine. I had to have emergency surgery to have a brain tumour removed.

“I am on the mend and feeling positive. Keep me in your thoughts.”
