Last week, Gregg Leakes asked for prayers as he prepared to undergo body scans that would determine whether his stage III colon cancer had returned. On Monday, Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) star NeNe Leakes took to Instagram to congratulate her husband for being cancer-free.
The reality star posted a photo of her smiling husband holding a sign that read, “No cancer found! Praise God…”
She captioned the picture, “Look at God! We are over joyed to say, we saw the doctors for the results of Gregg’s Pet Scan he took last week! Test show, wait for It…… WE ARE CANCER FREE!!!! Yes God!”
Making a joke out of the strain her hubby’s diagnosis put on their marriage, NeNe said, “Now i can go give Gregg a black eye 👊🏾since so many thinks he’s abused.”
The doting father and husband was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in June 2018 after spending more than two weeks in the hospital. Season 11 of RHOA documented his chemotherapy journey, road to recovery and the impact his cancer diagnosis had on the Leakes family.
Last month, the couple celebrated Gregg completing six months of chemotherapy.
