Ryan Read is a 31-year-old lady and a nurse by profession. One day she was watching television and HGTV’s Flip or Flop being her favourite show, she tuned into it. To her surprise, she noticed something on the neck of Tarek El Moussa, the host of the show. She saw a lump on his neck and with the experience she gathered in her medical profession, this thing made her thoughtful, as she knew it could be cancerous.
Not only the fact that she is a fan of Tarek El Moussa, but also her professional conscience made her take a call. She immediately contacted the production company by sending them a mail about the concern she had. She asked them to let El Moussa know about the health issues he might be faced with.
Read’s caution made El Moussa visit the doctor and get the lump checked. The doctor diagnosed it to be one afflicted with cancer. Without any delay they started the treatment which included a surgery. The doctors estimated the time of surgery to be one hour but it took them four to complete the operation. The cancer had reached his lymph nodes and he was under radioactive iodine treatment for quite some time. The radioactive rays were so intense that his little daughter was not allowed to meet him.
Finally, some good news knocked on El Moussa’s door when and he said, “I was told that the cancer didn’t spread beyond my neck. I’m hopeful now. We’re filming a bunch of episodes and going on with life as best we can.”
He is undergoing treatment and we hope he recovers soon. Pray for his well-being and share this story so that many more people join us in our prayers.
