Former Saved by the Bell star Dustin Diamond has been diagnosed with cancer, with some reports indicating Stage 4.
A statement on his official Facebook page read, “At this time we can confirm that Dustin does have cancer. Dustin will disclose more information once it is available and a plan moving forward is made.”
Earlier this week, Diamond was hospitalised in Florida after experiencing widespread pain in his body. At that time, a statement read, “Dustin is indeed going through some medical testing currently. We will release more information as it becomes available and appreciate all positive thoughts and prayers. This will your only place to get the official news on Dustin.”
Diamond, 44, played Samuel “Screech” Powers variously from 1989 – 2000.
