Dustin Diamond May Only Have Weeks to Live, Friend Reveals His 2 Final Wishes

Saved By the Bell‘s Dustin Diamond‘s close friend has revealed he may only have weeks to live given his stage four cancer diagnosis, and has revealed his final wishes in life.

“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,” the 44-year-old actor’s close friend Dan Block told The Sun. “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,” Dan added.

“There are two things Dustin asked for … the ability to talk to Justin Chancellor about music and to be able to visit Disney World to see ‘Star Wars Galaxy Edge,” he continued. “Dustin was learning to play several Tool songs and wanted to start a Tool tribute band. He was in the process of starting the band before being diagnosed with cancer. He would play the song and play along with his bass while watching YouTube videos. It would be amazing if Justin saw this article and could reach out — it would be granting one of Dustin’s dying wishes and we would greatly appreciate it.”

“He’s also a huge ‘Star Wars’ fan — so we’re hoping we can find a way to arrange that,” Dan concluded.

Our continued thoughts are with Dustin during this time. Read Dustin‘s official statement he released after his diagnosis.
