Gregg rang a bell and gonged it profusely which symbolized the end of his chemo treatment sessions. Gregg received a round of applause from the hospital staff and hugged each nurse and doctor in attendance, which was emotional because Gregg had been receiving treatment since last May.

Nene wrote in the Instagram post. “PS: Thank you to all of our family, friends, fans, doctors, and nurses who lifted us up in constant prayer, sent recipes, doctors info, gave advice and gifts! We love you,” she said. “PSS: what a relief! We finally get to share with the world what [we’ve] been going [through].”

Nene also talked about previously how difficult the journey has been for her and Gregg.

“It’s very, very hard to be a caretaker,” she told People previously. “People call and they say, ‘How’s Gregg doing?’ and I want to throw the phone and say, ‘How the f— am I doing? I’m going crazy over here, Gregg is wearing me out!’ I am not good at this s—! I would rather hire somebody. Gregg doesn’t want me to hire somebody, but I’m just not good. I’m not good at fluffing the pillow; I’m good at buying the pillow.”

In March Gregg told Andy on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show that he had turned a corner. “I’m doing great!” he said. “I feel great. I feel wonderful. I’m blessed everyday. You know, I never had cancer before so every day is like a new experience to me.”
