    Tarek and Christina El Moussa are the husband and wife hosts of HGTV’s house flipping show “Flip or Flop.” The original release of the show was in 2013.

    During a TV marathon of the show in 2013, registered nurse Ryan Reade noticed something strange on Tarek El Moussa’s throat while watching the show. 

    “I noticed that at certain angles, at certain times, it just caught my eye that Tarek had a lump on his throat,” Reade told TODAY, “and I thought it was something that needed to be brought to his attention.”

    Concerned, Reade sent the following email urging El Moussa to have it looked at. 

    It turns out that Tarek El Moussa was in stage two of thyroid cancer. Before the diagnoses, El Moussa had suffered from throat problems for years, but didn’t think anything of it because he was a heavy smoker. His lump was overlooked by him as his doctors as simply a fatty mass. 

    El Moussa removed the lump and has been in complete remission for about a year and a half now. 

    El Moussa rececntly went on the show “The Doctors” and got to personally thank Ryan Reade for saving his life.
