    ‘Guardian angel’

    Ruffo spoke to 7Entertainment in September about his decision to pay tribute to Sims in his new book, No Finish Line – calling her his “guardian angel”.

    Ruffo said Sims thought it was “super sweet” and told him: “You didn’t have to write that.”

    He said he told Sims: “It’s true, it’s the absolute truth.”

    Ruffo said he “literally would not be here” if it wasn’t for his girlfriend “because she’s been there for me several times where it’s been touch and go”.

    The Australian singer said, ahead of his first cancer battle in 2017, he was simply going to sleep off what he thought was a headache.

    But Sims thought otherwise and told him to go to the hospital.

    “The surgeon said, ‘If you had not come in to have the MRI, we wouldn’t have found the tumour. You wouldn’t have woken up the next morning’.”

    Ruffo said having Sims support him is “like a weight off your shoulders”.

    The toll on Tahnee

    The singer touched on his girlfriend’s unconditional support throughout his second cancer battle, saying Sims would work all day and come home to support him.

    Luckily, with unpredictable border closures during COVID, his mother managed to fly from Perth – where Ruffo’s family is from – to Sydney.

    “(Mum) kind of came here to help with day-to-day things like she helped cook and clean and everything and just to give Tahnee a bit of a break,” he said.

    “Tahnee works every day and I didn’t want her to have to work every day and then come home and clean and cook.”

    Ruffo recalled his mental state at the time, sharing details of the tests he had to undergo when being discharged from the hospital.

    For example, the doctors asked him to make a cup of tea with milk and no sugar.

    The singer said he had to “remember” how to make the drink and it “took me forever”.

    At the time, Ruffo said he thought to himself: “Come on man, this is easy.”
