In the premiere episode of season 11 of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," the family get together to discuss Greg's health. He admitted that so far the lowest point in his journey was the day he was diagnosed.

“I guess the scariest part about all of this is when we got to the hospital and the doctor saying that we need to do surgery on you tonight or you ain’t going to make it. And so I went over and prayed to God and I told Him, ‘If it’s time, let’s go. I don’t fear death, I don’t want to go. If my work here is finished here, take care of them, let’s go."

The words from Greg stunned the room, but he continued to reveal even more. He turned to Nene and told her he had written a letter to her before he went into surgery.
