Earlier this year, Ruffo, unfortunately, announced some somber news when he informed his fans that he had returned to the hospital for another round of chemotherapy.

“Back in my favourite chair …” he captioned his post, which was accompanied by a photo of himself giving the camera a thumbs up while he sat on his chemotherapy chair.

Prior to his most recent health update, Ruffo made an appearance on the Kicpod podcast where he shared his philosophy on how to make the most out of life, telling the show’s hosts that the key to life was to not “sweat the small things”.

“Cherish life,” he said.

“Don’t sweat the small things and make sure the last conversation you have with people that you love is a good one.”

Despite his beautiful outlook on life and the unwavering support from his fans and family, Ruffo has previously admitted that he fears the thought of dying before his loved ones have the chance to “say goodbye”.

“I’m scared for my brother, my mum, dad and Tahnee that they won’t be here with me [when I die],” Ruffo admitted to The Daily Telegraph.

“There is no way my family will all be here. The likelihood of that is (slim). It would be ideal if everyone was there – not for my sake, but theirs.”

However, Ruffo said he hadn’t given up hope and reassured everyone that he was “powering through” his battle.

“At some point, it will get me but I’m still fighting. Still kicking on…I’m already winning. My goal now is to try and help as many people as I can and also live a happy life,” he said.
