The star has been bravely sharing his emotional journey - everything from thanking the doctors who are helping to save his life to his beautiful girlfriend Tahnne and her endless support.
But, it appears that nothing is going to stop the dedicated actor and musician from working hard! In fact, it's motivated him to share some VERY exciting news.
Posting a picture of himself in a studio next to a microphone, he captioned: 'Back in the studio, Good times @castle.productions.'
It's official - the handsome Perth local is officially making new music!
We first fell in love with Ruffo in 2011 when he auditioned for the third season of X-Factor.
The series was taken out by his fellow boys team member Reese Mastin, with Johnny placing third.
In April 2012 he then danced his way to the top, winning the coveted mirror ball in Dancing with the stars.
Johnny made his acting debut on the iconic Australian soap drama, Home and Away in April 2013 as the handsome Chris Harrington.
In 2014, Johnny's acting chops landed him a TV WEEK Logie nomination for Most Popular New Talent.
In 2016, the actor decided to leave the show, announcing, 'I've loved my time in Summer Bay. There's a lot more coming up for Chris and I hope fans continue enjoying his time on screen.'
We can't WAIT to hear what the star releases next!
