A delighted Gregg shared a snap of the PET scan report which declared that no cancerous cells had been found. 

A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that uses a radioactive drug to detect the presence of disease, including cancerous cells. Gregg wrote on the report: 

"NO cancer detected. Thank you, Jesus!"

GREGG AND NENE LEAKES' MARRIAGE SHAKEN BY CANCER

The family's struggle with cancer, and NeNe's tireless care of Gregg, who admitted he was not an easy patient, left the relationship between the couple in shambles.

Hopefully, the good news will give them the boost they need to start working out their problems and get their marriage back into a good place.

NENE AND GREGG LEAKES' MARITAL PROBLEMS

During Season 11  the true state of the Leakes marriage came to the fore, as NeNe Leakes seriously considered calling it quits.

After 20 years of marriage, the strain of dealing with Greggs often difficult temperament during his bout with colon cancer was too much for NeNe.

The reality star admitted to Andy Cohen that even though she loves Gregg, she doesn't know if she is willing to continue the marriage unless there are some major changes.

Now that the awful strain of the cancer threat has abated, maybe they can start working on recapturing that loving feeling.
