One of the most heartbreaking story-lines of this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta was Gregg and Nene Leakes battle with cancer. According to a post on Nene’s Instagram, Gregg is cancer free.

Her post reads:

“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! Now i can go give Gregg a black eye since so many thinks he’s abused #fuckcancer #fuckopinions #cancersurvivor #pushthrucaretakers #lifeoftheleakes”


Nene received a lot of pushback for not treating Gregg the way that “fans” and “friends,” thought that she should. However anyone who has dealt with this dreaded disease understands, there is no cookie cutter way to support someone who is sick. It is an answered prayer for so many.
