Sad news to report today. “Real Chance Of Love” star Ahmed Givens, better known as “Real,” is battling stage 4 colon cancer, and is expected to start chemotherapy treatments immediately. We just found out the news a few days ago, when fellow VH1 reality star Ray J tweeted: “Just talked to ‘Chance’ [Kamal Givens, Real’s brother] he told me to tell the world to pray for his bro ‘Real’ he has stage 4 colon cancer! Pls send out a prayer for him!” Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
So sad! We are definitely thinking of Ahmed during this difficult time! We have been told that even though he only found out the diagnosis a week ago, he is planning to go ahead and begin chemotherapy immediately to try to battle the cancer as best he can. He definitely has a long road ahead of him, but he has a lot of people on his side pulling for him.
Ahmed Givens thought that he had the flu back in January, and visited his doctor several times trying to figure out what was going on. He was told to give it some time to see if the issue got better on it’s own. When his condition didn’t improve with time, his doctors ordered more and more tests.
Originally, they thought that something was wrong with his liver, but as it turns out, it was colon cancer all along. Given’s rep confirmed that the cancer has also spread to his liver and his lungs. His treatment will be intense, and will have to begin right away.
Besides needing prayers, love, and good thoughts, Ahmed’s family is also seeking donations to help him pay for his hospital bills. They have set up a fund on GiveForward.com and are asking for help raising money. Ahmed does have health insurance, but it only covers around 40% of the costs. The fundraising page says:
“Anybody that knows Real knows that he is a tough, strong, spiritual individual, and will fight this off,” the fundraising page says. “The Givens family currently has Real being treated at Cedars Sinai. Real is trying to stay positive and make a full recovery. He appreciates all his friends, family, and fans for helping him get through in this time of need.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Ahmed Givens during this trying time and also with his family, friends and loved ones. We are pulling for him and hope that he makes a full recovery.
