Since revealing that her beloved husband Gregg Leakes was diagnosed with cancer this past June, Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is sharing an update after Gregg, 63, underwent surgery this week in his battle against cancer.
NeNe, 51, first revealed her husband’s illness after he endured a lengthy hospital stay in May. She made it clear from the beginning that they would be taking on the disease together, writing, “Our new normal and the fight begins.”
On Monday, NeNe took to her Instagram page once more to ask friends and fans to pray for ‘her hunni,’ as he prepared to undergo what the couple hopes will be his last surgery.
“My hunni is having what we hope and pray is his last surgery towards a full recovery today!” she shared. “It will be a long surgery so we are asking you to pray for the surgeon’s hands, pray for Gregg’s comfort please! Prayers, strength, peace and kindness for myself, his children and family during this time! Amen (come on pray warriors??) Lord i tell ya, sometimes you never know what a person is going thru! I will update you all as much as i can on my insta story.”
The reality star then followed up on Tuesday, thanking her friends and RHOA co-stars, Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton, for providing her and Gregg with support, love, and some much needed comic relief during what was surely a very trying time.
“SWPIE: (Toss It back Tuesday) We can’t pick our family but friends are special people!” Nene wrote. “Cynthia and Marlo you showed the definition of a real FRIEND yesterday! From Marlo decorating Gregg’s hospital room to Cynthia helping Gregg sip water from a cup! You both provided love, laughs and comfort all while driving me crazy to having Gregg put us out his room? No matter what, I want to say THANK YOU! It feels good to have friends like you around in a time of need. It meant a lot and i will never forget it.”
Well, Gregg being strong enough to kick “the talls” out of his room post surgery is definitely a good sign! Nene has been very open about Gregg’s cancer battle, posting regular updates on her social media about the new diets and natural therapies he is trying.
Back in June, she wrote: “We cooked in the kitchen today and the menu was all ALKALINE based foods! Get into it cancer patients?? #fightingcancertogether.”
For the time being, Nene has yet to reveal what kind of cancer Gregg is battling.
The trailer for the upcoming season of RHOA is expected to be released any day now by Bravo.
