“Tahnee inspires me to want to do better and be better. She helps me find the fight everyday and I’m so grateful for that. I can’t thank her enough,’ he said.

Johnny revealed they are trying to keep their relationship as normal as possible by talking about future plans, but his bleak prognosis still weighs heavily on her.

“I already feel the pain she’s going through and there’s nothing I can do about it. I can’t take that away from her,’ he said.

“It’s heartbreaking for me and it feels like it’s all my fault. I do not know what to do. So we take each day as it comes. I fight the hardest.”

Johnny was first diagnosed in August 2017 after suffering an excruciating headache.

He underwent a rushed operation and doctors removed a 7 cm tumor from his frontal lobe and also underwent chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

The former X Factor star went into remission months later, but revealed in November 2021 that the disease had returned.

Johnny confirmed to The Project on Monday that his cancer is now terminal.

He told host Carrie Bickmore, who lost her husband Greg Lange to brain cancer in 2010, that he was already past his life expectancy.

“It’ll get to me eventually, but I’m still fighting. Still performing. If I look up my diagnosis and tumor, the average life expectancy is three years,” he admitted.

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

Despite his struggles, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant was more concerned about how his girlfriend Tahnee would be coping after his death.

“You can only imagine how hard it was for her,” he said to Carrie.

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

“So it’s something I don’t want to think about. It just makes me a little bit emotional knowing that something is going to happen eventually, whether it’s in a month or 10 years or 20 years.
