“Saved By The Bell” star Dustin Diamond has received a stage four cancer diagnosis.
EW revealed the diagnosis and stated that Diamond will undergo chemo.
ET Canada has confirmed that Diamond has been hospitalized in Florida following an initial report by TMZ. The “Saved By The Bell” alum was hospitalized over the weekend possibly with a form of cancer, but was awaiting test results.
“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,” explained 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.”
His team then posted on Facebook:
Diamond reportedly has a family history of cancer. His mother died of breast cancer.
An actor for more than 30 years, Diamond famously played Screech on four seasons of “Saved By The Bell”. He has also appeared on “Celebrity Big Brother” and “Duck Dodgers”. Diamond, 44, most recently appeared as himself on the live-action television series “Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell”.
