Flip or Flop” star Tarek El Moussa is heartbroken over the health ordeal of his beloved companion and cast mate Frank “The Tank” Miller.
The HGTV contractor has been doing combating cancer.
“You know, he’s not doing very well right now,” El Moussa revealed to Fox News. “He’s not doing well. It’s a major bummer. He’s a very, very important person to me. He’s very, very close to me. That is to say, I’ve been watching this poor person battle. It’s been extreme.”
El Moussa took to Instagram Tuesday to share an update on Miller, who has been on immunotherapy for five months, causing “his face and body to swell 10 times the size it should be.”
He included Miller previously experienced numerous treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation, to keep the aggressive illness from spreading. Despite Miller’s assurance, El Moussa uncovered the cancer has been spreading and heading to his mind.
With no other options, Miller reached out to the Lazarus Foundation to take an interest in another clinical trial. And keeping in mind that he was acknowledged, Miller suffered another major setback.
“Frank got such a terrible disease in his lungs it which caused a severe pneumonia that his body went into shock and he was incoherent and fell off his bed causing him to crack his head in 2 places,” composed El Moussa. “He was rushed to the hospital at UCI where he was in the cardiovascular care unit and put on antibiotics and is at present in stable condition.
“Frank will stay in the hospital a couple more days to fend off the pneumonia so he can be sufficiently healthy to start the clinical trial…”
Despite the greater part of Miller’s current woes, he’s still resolved to battle his cancer – and win.
“Frank said that ‘Withering is not a choice’ and he sure means it,” composed El Moussa. “He is a contender thus quite a bit of his strength comes from his family, friends and supporters. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.”
