ahmad givens stage four colon cancer vhi real chance love

Ahmad Givens, one of the guys on the VH1 reality show called Real Chance Of Love, has just been diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. We don't even know what to say, as that sounds like a real-life nightmare.

Right now, he's waiting in the hospital while doctors figure out how to take on the disease, especially this late in the game. Apparently he first got sick in January and thought was just the flu, but ended up in the hospital. FOUR times.

Terrence Howard Joins The Colon Cancer Alliance!

Filed under: InspirationTerrence HowardCancer

Terrence Howard is known around Hollywood for being a little full of himself, and kinda hard to work with. We're glad he's doing something to change that frame of mind, because we really do think he's one hell of an actor!

Terrence has joined the Colon Cancer Alliance, and has recorded a new PSA for the group — all about getting people the proper screening for colon cancer, which is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in America. It's also very preventable with the right kind of screening!

Unfortunately, it couldn't be prevented in Terrence's mother, and that's why he has taken up this fight:

“I miss my mother’s voice and her gentle kindness. But despite my loss, my mom would love to know that her battle with colon cancer helped save others."

Virtually equal numbers of women (69,140) and men (73,680) are diagnosed with colon cancer each year, and yet people still view it as a "man's disease."

Check out Terrence's inspirational PSA (above), and make sure you get screened!

Sharon Osbourne is talking about her double mastectomy, and how she has absolutely no regrets. We don't think anyone who gets a mastectomy should EVER have regrets!

Interestingly enough, Sharon had the procedure done before she even got breast cancer.

Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. — but about 40% of people who should get colonoscopies don't.

For many of them, it's about the uncomfortable prepping where you basically drink a month's worth of laxatives in one night or the fact that they cost

Robin Gibb Could Leave The Hospital By The End Of The Week

This man's recovery is incredible enough on its own, let alone how quickly he seems to be on the mend!

Robin Gibb reportedly had a 10% chance of survival when he slipped into a coma earlier in the month while battling both colon and liver cancer, as well as pneumonia, but he remarkably was able to wake up last week - and now is doing so well that he is preparing to leave the hospital!
