Saved By The Bell star Dustin Diamond ‘diagnosed with terminal cancer’
Saved By The Bell star Dustin Diamond has reportedly been diagnosed with terminal cancer and may have just weeks to live.
The actor, who played Screech Powers in the sitcom, found out he had stage four cancer last month after being rushed to hospital with "pain all over his body".
Now a pal has claimed his cancer is terminal and his dying wishes are to talk to ustin Chancellor -bassist from his favourite band Tool – and visit the Star Wars exhibit at Disney World in Florida.
The actor has allegedly been told he has anything from a few weeks to a year or two left to live.
His close pal Dan Block told The Sun:" "We do not have any specific timelines, but we know that Dustin needs a miracle to overcome the small cell carcinoma he's been diagnosed with.
"He was told weeks to 5 months is the average but a small percentage of people have lived one to two years with it being stage 4.
"We are hoping that he is one of the people to outlive the odds and that we get as much time with him as possible."
They said there are "two things Dustin asked for" – "the ability to talk to Justin Chancellor about music" and "also to be able to visit Disney World to see Star Wars Galaxy Edge".
Dan also explained "Dustin was learning to play several Tool songs" and "wanted to start a Tool tribute band".
He said "he was in the process of starting the band before being diagnosed with cancer", adding, he would "play the song and play along with his bass while watching YouTube videos".
Dustin's representative declined to comment about the revelations to Daily Star Online.
The actor shot to fame in Saved By The Bell and later reprised the role in the show's follow-up series Saved by the Bell: The College Years and Saved by the Bell: The New Class.
In 2013 he re-found fame in the UK after taking part in Celebrity Big Brother.
However, after 16 days he was evicted from the camera-filled house.
In December TMZ reported that Dustin was hospitalised after complaining of "pain all over his body".
