Alexx Banxx, one of the cast members from OWNtv’s ‘Ready To Love’ reality dating show is extremely ill and has been hospitalized with brain flu.

Alexx is currently one of the three remaining males on the show looking for love, but now he has a bigger battle on his hands. MTO News confirmed that the reality star is now battling for his life after a severe case of the flu traveled to his brain.

According to family members, Alexx got the flu the week before Thanksgiving, and things quickly turned life-threatening. He posted on Instagram:

Flu ain’t no joke. Pray for a brother. Been out of commission since Friday… fever on 100 plus #flu #sick #down #headache #feelingbetter #riseup #thanksgiving was finna be real rough

But he took a turn for the worse, and was rushed to the hospital

His family set up a GoFundMe for him. This is what they say is the latest on his condition:

Alexx got the flu and couldn’t work. He is a truck driver. He became very ill with the flu and had gone to the hospital but they sent him back home to stay in bed. The next day he was so weak, his family had to go pick him up and take him to a 2nd hospital. He was diagnosed with INFLUENZA B and had become dehydrated and his kidney was damaged because of the dehydration. He was given IV fluids and sent home. (This happened 3 times, still to be sent home) No one hospitalized him. Finally 911 was called and he was taken to the hospital where he has now been since Sun 25th, of November 2018. He was put in ICU with Brain flu.

He is 34 years old and now on life support with a flu virus that has attacked his body and brain. There are other complications that have developed from this Flu virus, it has been VERY AGGRESSIVE

As of now, his medical bills are rising daily and there is no insurance. He is self employed. Please help raise money for his medical needs. Right now he is not awake but still sleeping from sedations given earlier to calm his brain activity.

We don’t know how long he will sleep but as of now his body is fighting. We need prayers of faith and monies to assist with medical expenses.
