Back in June, The Real Housewives of Atlanta's NeNe Leakes revealed that her husband, Gregg Leakes, had been diagnosed with cancer. "The fight begins," she wrote at the time. Since then, NeNe has kept fans in the loop about how she and Gregg have tweaked their lifestyles by eating more alkaline-based foods. She also gave an update on Gregg's health in August (watch the clip above). She then shared about Gregg's surgery in September. And now, the Swagg boutique owner is taking a moment to reflect on how deeply the diagnosis has altered her world.
In an October 21 Instagram post, NeNe wrote, "CANCER! I know many of you can relate and understand! This word will never be easy to hear for me! It changed my life in so many ways. You change as a person — from the way you think to the way you eat!"
She continued, "My marriage changed tremendously! The way [I] look at people around me and my approach for my family future. With all this change happening, I’ve felt lost and alone not to mention the roller coaster of feelings my hubby Gregg has had! He’s Definitely felt isolated from the rest of the world, mad, sad, depressed and left with asking why me!"
