Tarek El Moussa is one lucky guy. He could have died if it wasn’t for an eagle eyed nurse who was watching his television program. He hosts a show called ‘Flip or Flop’ on HGTV with his wife Christina. The weekly program shows the process of buying a distressed property and renovating it.
In 2013 a woman called Ryan Reed was watching the program and noticed that Tarek had a lump at the bottom of his neck. As a nurse she immediately knew something was wrong and emailed producers to say that he needed to go and get the lump checked out immediately.
Ms Reeds hunch was bang on. Mr Moussa was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and went into surgery immediately. It was caught just in time, they removed the tumour then Tarek had to undergo radioactive iodine therapy.
Tarek has thankfully been given the all clear, he has a lot to thank Ms Reed for! What an absolute legend. Check out these pigeons being trained to detect cancer.
