If you watch VH1’s Real Chance of Love you will know Ahmad Givens popularly known as ?Real”. ?Ahmad Givens has died after a long battle with colon cancer. He died at 33. His brother Kamal a.k.a. “Chance” confirmed it on Instagram Saturday morning.

“By [sic] to my favorite guy in this whole world be in peace we love you forever bro I’ll see you one day soon we shall dance again in God’s kindom forever and ever bro words can’t describe my pain world pray for me!”

Givens and his brother Kamal had been contestants on VH1’s I Love New York in 2007. The next year, the brothers went on to star on their own reality dating show Real Chance of Love for two seasons.

In 2013, Givens was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. ?He explained how he felf when he was diagnosed of cancer in an interview last year;

“That day was very surreal. I felt like I was dreaming. It felt unreal all the way up until I had to do chemo.”
“I remember I was laying on the hospital bed and the doctor came in crying and when I saw her crying I knew it was something serious. My doctors thought I had, like, three days to live so they just zapped me with chemo. I left out of there with my veins burning and everything.”

Givens said after surgery, the tumors spread to the left side of his brain, leaving him partially paralyzed on the right side of his body.

“I had to learn how to walk again and everything,” “I just have faith in god, man.”

Givens also said he had a few things helping him keep going through his long battle.

“Number one is the will to live. I love life. And my little boy, man. That kid loves me to death,” “I grew up in a neighborhood where African-American boys didn’t have their fathers in the house and I always told myself, ‘When I get married one day and have kids, [I’m] going to be there for my kids and that’s a vow that I made and that’s a vow that I plan on keeping and that’s what keeps me fighting.”
