Gregg Leakes cancer free

As fans of Real Housewives of Atlanta know, NeNe Leakes’ husband Gregg was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2018. Viewers watched Gregg battle this disease with courage and his unwavering faith.

Gregg traveled many roads during this journey. His marriage suffered, along with his health. NeNe was especially vocal about how difficult it was to find herself in the role of a caregiver. She often chided Gregg for his grumpiness and overall attitude. While he experienced several setbacks, there is light at the end of the tunnel. In April, Gregg completed his chemotherapy treatments and was celebrated with a party thrown by his wife. Thankfully, Gregg and his family have even more reason to celebrate this month.

In some wonderful news everyone can appreciate, Gregg is now cancer free. He posted a photo of himself on Instagram with the amazing update. “Won’t He do it…”, Gregg captioned. In a message to his followers, he shared, “Thank you ALL for your Prayers for me and please continue to Pray during my journey…”

He also made a point to thank NeNe by writing, “I thank my wife @neneleakes for being there for me.. Sometimes it wasn’t easy..” I think most of us recall how stressful Gregg’s cancer was on NeNe, given her attitude during Season 11 of RHOA.

NeNe also let her fans know of Gregg’s huge milestone in her own Instagram post. “Look at God! We are overjoyed to say, we saw the doctors for the results of Gregg’s Pet Scan he took last week! Test show, wait for it…. WE ARE CANCER FREE!!!”

In what I’m sure was meant to be a lighthearted moment, NeNe also said, “Now I can go give Gregg a black eye since so many thinks he’s abused…” I’m not entirely sure anyone thought Gregg was “abused” until they watched how he was being treated on RHOA.

In addition to being frustrated during filming, NeNe was not shy about sharing her thoughts on Gregg and how debilitating it was for her to care for him. So, quite frankly, viewers could only work with what they saw.

I’m sure we will all send our congratulations to Gregg and his family with this joyous news. Hopes for continued good health and much respect for his positive attitude going forward. And for NeNe, I doubt I am alone when I say I hope this news is enough to give her some peace. It would be nice to see her appreciate this good fortune and pay it forward with her own positive attitude.
