Two weeks after conducting my interview with musician/reality television star Ahmad Givens, aka Real, one third of the music group The Stallionaires, I received heartbreaking news that he has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.
I was so devastated, I knew in my heart I had to take action and help this beautiful soul who is a son, husband, father, and brother.
When I was planning to write my story for SoulTrain.com about The Stallionaires, I remember Ahmad telling me he had been feeling under the weather and had the flu, so he thought. According to the American Cancer Society, various types of cancer may appear to be flu like symptoms.
I have been in communication with Ahmad’s wife, Mrs. Raquel Givens. Ahmad has begun chemotherapy, and has made a great lifestyle change. In addition to the chemo he is being monitored and advised by metaphysical holistic herbalist Dr. Lee Warren, executive director of PLIM (Power Latent In Man). Dr. Warren has assisted many cancer patients all over the world who are now in remission due to following a healthy nutritional program to restore the body.
Dr. Warren has instructed the Givens family to administer essiac tea, a known cancer fighter, wheat grass, graviola, Vitamin D (5000 IU), and an all-green diet of vegetables and fruits.
Because Ahmad is so young (33 years old), his closest friends and colleagues are very concerned about his health. The cancer has spread to his liver and lungs. This news has sent shock waves through the entertainment community and is a wake up call for all of us. We all must focus on our health and get regular check-ups, especially cancer screenings. Cancer is so wide spread most states offer free cancer screenings.
Due to earth and weather changes and genetically modified food supply it is extremely vital to our health, that we monitor the foods we eat. According to Dr. Joseph Thomas (DD, MD, MBA, FACS, FACOG, Harvard University and Chairman of the Department of Surgery for Advocate Trinity Hospital, Chicago, IL), that African Americans are more Vitamin D-deficient than any other race of people. Vitamin D (5000 IU) is also a known cancer fighter.
Ahmad told me in our interview that he believes in the power of the creator and natural herbs from the earth. Growing up on a farm his family was privy to fresh fruits, vegetables, natural spices and herbs.
Ahmad is in great spirits, and appreciates all the love and support he has received from around the globe.
We here at SoulTrain.com send our love and positive energy to Ahmad Givens and his family.
Ahmad’s insurance will only cover a portion of his medical bills. A special fund has been set up for Ahmad Givens to cover medical cost for his care. Brother Micah Givens is the head organizer of the crowd funding campaign. To donate to the Cancer Fund for Real, click here. Stay up to date with Ahmad “Real” Givens on Facebook and Twitter.
