Ahmad Givens (better known as "Real") needs some prayers and positivity sent his way.

The former Real Chance of Love and I Love New York star is battling stage four colon cancer.

Fellow VH1 reality star Ray J tweeted the sad news on Tuesday, writing, "Just talked to 'Chance' [Kamal Givens, Real's brother] he told me to tell the world to pray for his bro 'Real' he has stage 4 colon cancer! Pls send out a prayer for him!"

Real's family has set up a fund to help pay for the reality star's medical bills, explaining that his insurance company only covers 40 percent.

"Anybody that knows Real knows that he is a tough, strong, spiritual individual, and will fight this off," the fundraising page says. "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."
