A nurse watching TV from home noticed that Tarek El Moussa, presenter of the show “Flip Or Flop” on HGTV, had a lump on his throat. Being a registered nurse Ryan Read instinctively knew the growth was cancerous and knew it needed urgent attention. So she emailed the production company and told them that El Moussa needed to see a doctor immediately.
Luckily they listened and passed on her concerns to the presenter straight away. He immediately went to see his doctor. Ryan’s instinct was spot on. The 34-year-old Tarek had thyroid cancer which had sadly spread to his lymph nodes.
Thanks to this nurse’s quick thinking, doctors were able to start treatment in time.
According to Tarek’s doctors the cancer hasn’t spread any further. We hope he recovers soon and returns to inform his loyal fans, cancer-free.
