The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star recently revealed that her husband was diagnosed with cancer, but they’re not just waiting for a miracle and instead are actively working together to fight the disease.
NeNe Leakes shared the sad news with the world about her husband, Greg Leakes being a cancer patient on June 13. Her Instagram post shows the businessman looking defiantly to the camera with crossed arms in front of a screen with word “Cancer” crossed out in red.
The photo was taken at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, and in the caption, Nene proved how ready she is to fight the disease alongside her husband. “Our New Normal and the fight begins #yougotthis #iloveyou,” she wrote.
NeNe and Greg married in 1997, divorced in 2010 and re-married in 2013. Since then, their relationship has been going strong. Both have successful careers in their respective fields, and NeNe has shown several times through social media posts how in love she is with her husband despite all the time they have been together.
The couple has been getting an overwhelming outpouring of love from fans and even from NeNe’s reality co-stars. Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burrus, Porsha Williams, Eva Marcille, Marlon Hampton and even arch-enemy Kim Zolciak have sent their love and well wishes for Gregg.
Leakes thanked fans for reaching out to her with advice about cleanses, diets and holistic healthcare to help her husband. She even created a particular email so that fans can send her special treatments, and all things they think could help with Greg’s recovery.
It seems like the couple already found a new diet to follow, and NeNe is changing her lifestyle to join her husband in his new healthy journey, as she revealed on a recent photo where the pair is standing in the middle of their kitchen after trying a new menu.
The star wrote in her caption:
“We cooked in the kitchen today and the menu was all ALKALINE based foods! Get into it cancer patient #fightingcancertogether.”
A diet high on alkaline includes a lot of veggies, fruits, raw foods, green juices, beans, and nuts. High-sodium foods, such as processed grains, meat and animal protein, sugars and milk are not recommended.
We wish Gregg a quick recovery.
