'Real Chance of Love' Star

Fighting Stage Four Cancer

Exclusive Details

0321_real_chance_instagramOne of the guys from the VH1 reality show "Real Chance of Love" has been diagnosed with STAGE FOUR colon cancer ... and is hospitalized while doctors come up with a strategy to attack the disease.

TMZ has learned Real ... real name Ahmad Givens ... is getting treatment at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Beverly Hills.

A rep for Real -- who starred with his brother on the popular dating show 'Real Chance' -- tells TMZ he first got sick in January with what he thought was the flu.

We're told 33-year-old Real went back to the hospital at least 4 times and was initially told something was wrong with his liver -- but last week doctors informed him it was colon cancer.

Stage four generally means the cancer has spread to other parts of the body.

We're told the rapper-turned-reality-star will remain hospitalized at least until docs figure out what kind of treatment -- chemotherapy, radiation, or both -- he will require.

The rep says they expect a decision from doctors today.

There is no treatment. At all. I wish he would leave the hospital and spent his final days happy enjoting it at home, outside, with his friends and familty. Not stuck
in a hospital with needles and chemo , xrays, hideous food, crappy bed etc... oh yeah getting waken up several times thru the night to take temperture.

GO HOME AND LIVE YOUR LIFE!

I don't know this man, but I wish him a full, speedy recovery. Hopefully he's got lots of good people around him to help him through this.

Sorry But better start putting your affairs in order. Stage 4 Colon Cancer is virtually untreatable. They can't do a re-section as it has already spread. Another instance where if he had a colonoscopy and they caught it early it is 100% curable.....
