Ahmad Givens from the “Real Chance of Love” is set to begin chemotherapy after being diagnosed with stage four colon cancer, TMZ reports.
Givens, who goes by “Real,” met with doctors at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles last week, where they advised him to begin oral chemotherapy — which is chemo taken in the form of a pill rather than an IV.
The treatment is expected to last two years.
Real is raising money to pay for the treatment, as his insurance company is only paying for 40 percent of the costs. The reality TV star is devastated by the news, but is staying strong for his family.
Among cancers that affect both men and women, colon cancer is second leading cause of death cause in both men and women, according to the Center for Disease Control.
