NeNe Leakes reveals that she and husband Gregg Leakes are American Cancer Society ambassadors
NeNe Leakes, best known for “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” announced on Instagram that she and her husband are the newest American Cancer Society ambassadors.
In the post, the lady appeared wearing a beautiful silver dress while she was talking to a reporter. Her husband, Gregg Leakes, was standing next to the TV personality wearing a suit.
For the caption, NeNe wrote,
“You are looking at your newest American Cancer Society Ambassadors... the Leakes. @americancancersociety Let’s kill cancer.”
As soon as she uploaded that photo, her followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts.
“God Bless you and your family! Tell your husband keep strong! He’s looking great. God has him!” wrote a user.
“Greg is looking much better and pray he feels as good as he looks. I’m praying for him,” wished a second follower.
“Greg looks good... God is able… blessings Queen,” stated another person.
GREGG’S CANCER DIAGNOSIS
Unfortunately, NeNe’s husband was diagnosed with colon cancer in June 2018. From that point on, their lives drastically changed as Gregg had to undergo surgery and different treatments to fight it.
NeNe has been by his side all the time no matter his changing mood. However, some people used to send backlash to her for not “taking care” of her husband. Tired of those comments, NeNe took to Instagram to let people know that Gregg was not stuck in bed or hooked to a machine.
The TV personality even pointed out that her husband was out in a casino at the time of sharing that post and asked him to enjoy his time there and take home some money, too.
A HARD TIME FIGHTING CANCER
Even though NeNe finished her post with a joke, things have not been easy for them. During an episode of “RHOA,” she broke down in tears while explaining how her husband's behavior drastically changed since he got sick.
NeNe admitted that Gregg had been “a grouch,” and that he yelled at her a lot at home. With her husband in the same scene, she made sure to let him know how hurtful it was for her when he acted mean towards her despite her support.
Later, the man took to Instagram to apologize and set clear that he would try to be better for NeNe. Despite their arguments and misunderstandings, the TV personality continues to stand by Gregg throughout this tough time, and it is together that they are riding out this storm.
