“You can only imagine how hard it has been for her,” the former Home and Away star told host Carrie Bickmore.

“What’s on my mind a lot is, I hate to say this, how hard it can be for her if something happens to me,” he continued.

“So it’s something I don’t want to think about. It just makes me a little emotional because I know that at some point something will happen, whether it’s, you know, in a month or in 10 years or in 20 years.”

Johnny told Carrie that he has already outlived his life expectancy with the disease.

“It will get to me at some point, but I’m still fighting. Still kicking. When I looked up my diagnosis and my tumor, the average life expectancy was three years,” he admitted.

“And for me it’s been five years now. I’m already winning. My goal now is to try to help as many people as possible and also to live a happy life.”

Earlier this year, Johnny spoke about the integral role Tahnee has played in his life, during his ongoing health battle.
