'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.

To bad doctors in the U.S. are so busy worrying about money that they can't even diagnose cancer in the early stages. My father in law died because they told him four different diagnoses in a five year period and then told him he had 3 months to live, he survived for 4. Ahmed Givens should sue their buts off. Nobody should die because their doctors are to arrogant to do their job. Their nothing but garbage men.

“After going to the doctor and having multiple test ran, Real was unfortunately diagnosed with Stage Four Colon Cancer.

The symptoms were first introduced to Real (Ahmad Givens) Upon the start of the new year. Real, who is well known for staring in multiple hit reality shows originally thought he had a normal flu or virus, being that he was in a state of great health, preparing to shoot his new Reality Series due to air late 2013. After going to the doctor and having multiple test ran, Real was unfortunately diagnosed with Stage Four Colon Cancer. Anybody that knows Real knows that he is a tough, strong, spiritual individual, and will fight this off. 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. Chris Abrego (51 Minds Producer), and many entertainers have been reaching out to Real and the Givens family, Trying to figure out the best way to Raise Funds for Real’s Illness due to his insurance only covering 40% of his medical bills.”

I'm really bummed out by this. He's such a nice guy. I'm really hoping its a misdiagnosis, or at the very least, not as bad as initially thought.

nutrition is the only answer at this point I've seen this many times and love turning it around. He can't get what he needs from food he must use supplementation. Please contact me I will be thrilled to help. (timtyree87@gmail.com)
