Dustin Diamond, who famously played Screech on Saved by the Bell, has lost his battle with cancer. He was 44.
Back in January, he was admitted to the hospital after feeling pain all over his body and a general sense of unease. This, however, turned out to be cancer.
"A rep for Dustin tells us he died Monday morning. His condition had greatly declined since last week, and he was taken off of breathing machines in an attempt to get him to hospice care. His GF was by his side when he passed away.
Dustin's death comes just a couple weeks after completing his first round of chemo after he was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell carcinoma ... which is commonly referred to as lung cancer. We were told the cancer started somewhere in Dustin's body and metastasized in his lungs."
