A Lazy Town Memes facebook page that has been in contact with actor Stefán Karl Stefánsson posted the following:
"Dear friends, I feel so heartbroken, but I have to tell you a very sad news about Stefán. PET scan confirmed inoperable tumors. Chemotherapy planned starting next week. Unfortunately, nothing can be done from this point really, this is the beginning of the end of the road for our number one - Stefán and that's so hard to understand but that is the truth. Please, cross your fingers that the chemo will longer his life a little. Thank you everyone for your love and support. Stefán loves you so much. Keep praying for him and sending him your love. Peace."

It’s not until they tell you you’re going to die soon that you realize how short life is. Time is the most valuable thing in life because it never comes back. And whether you spend it in the arms of a loved one or alone in a prison-cell, life is what you make of it. Dream big.— Stefankarl (@stefanssonkarl) March 10, 2018
