#Roommates, more sad news to report to start off 2021, as it was recently confirmed that “Saved By The Bell” star Dustin Diamond, who played the nerdy character “Screech,” has been diagnosed with cancer. Dustin’s representatives announced that the diagnosis is very serious, as he is currently in stage four and undergoing chemotherapy.
According to @EntertainmentWeekly, following widespread reports that he had recently been hospitalized with an undisclosed illness—it has sadly been confirmed that Dustin Diamond, 44, has received a stage four cancer diagnosis. He is currently in a Florida hospital undergoing chemotherapy treatment..
A rep for Dustin told media outlets that he plans to release a formal statement regarding his health soon. However, the rep described the cancer as “serious.” As testing continues, he remains at the hospital and will continue to be there “for a while.”
“He’s undergoing chemo so he will be there at least another week and then we will figure out when he gets to come home,” explains his rep. “By next week, we’ll have a much better understanding of the severity of his condition and what treatments he will need so that he’s comfortable.”
He further explains that Dustin Diamond is feeling “fine” today though he was not doing so great when he was admitted to the hospital. “He was fading in and out, feeling sleepy and tired. On top of all this he also has shingles, so he’s been in a lot of pain.”
We want to send our thoughts and prayers out to his family.
