Earlier this year, Nene Leakes shared on social media that her husband Gregg Leakes was diagnosed with cancer. And while Gregg successfully underwent surgery, he was unsure at the time if he would make it out of the alive.
During the season premiere of Real Housewives of Atlanta Sunday night, the camera crew documented Gregg’s journey. He recalls the moment he was diagnosis and his conversation with God as he prepared for the worst.
“I guess the scariest part about all of this is when we got to the hospital and the doctor saying that we need to so surgery on you tonight or you ain’t going to make it. And so I went over and prayed to God and I told Him, ‘If it’s time, let’s go. I don’t fear death, I don’t want to go. If my work here is finished here, take care of them, let’s go,” Gregg says.
Moments after his prayer, he wrote a special letter for his wife Nene in case he didn’t make it out.
“I wrote a note to my doctor and I told him to give it to you if I didn’t come out… Writing hat note was the hardest thing I ever did in my life.”
Thanks to the man above, Nene did not receive the letter because Gregg surgery was success. And now he plans to fight and beat cancer’s a$$.
