NeNe Leakes revealed Wednesday that her husband, Gregg Leakes, has been diagnosed with cancer.

“Our New Normal and the fight begins,” The Real Housewives of Atlanta star captioned a photo on Instagram of Gregg sitting in front of a computer with the word “Cancer” on the screen with a red line through it.

Fans responded to the post by offering Gregg and NeNe words of encouragement.

“It won’t be easy but U Are Covered and God [sic] Ya Back !!!!” wrote Instagram user iamsimplysunshine.

“Praying for healing and deliverance,” added lindaj06.

Another fan said: “Rolling up the sleeves fight the good fight… calling ALL Angels.”

NeNe announced last month that she was canceling some of her comedy shows because Gregg, 63, had been hospitalized.

“First of all, I just want to say that I feel very blessed and extremely lucky to be able to do what I do. I’m so grateful that you guys purchased tickets to see me everywhere,” she said in a video posted on Instagram last month. “I have to cancel my Albany, New York, show and my New York City Caroline’s show. Today marks the 15th day straight that Gregg has been in the hospital.”

She continued by saying Gregg urged her to do the shows, but she found it too difficult “to stand on stage and laugh and have a good time and give you guys your money’s worth knowing that my husband is in the hospital not feeling well.”
