HGTV host Tarek El Moussa was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and has been undergoing treatment for it.
The thanks for catching it, goes to an eagle eyed viewer named Ryan Read, a nurse. Ryan sent an email to the show documenting what he saw on his TV.
The email read:
“This is not a joke. I’m a registered nurse. I’ve been watching Flip or Flop. I noticed that the host Tarek has a large nodule on his thyroid, and he needs to have it checked out.”
As it turns out, the nodule was cancerous and Tarek began undergoing agrressive radioactive iodine therapy.
Now, over two years later he’s in full remission, and he has a concerned viewer and nurse to thank for this recovery.
