‘Flip or Flop’ Contractor Frank ‘the Tank’ Rushed to Hospital Amid Cancer Battle

”His body is shutting down,“ series star Tarek El Moussa tells fans

“Flip or Flop” contractor Frank “the Tank” Miller, who announced that he has inoperable cancer in May, was rushed to the hospital over the weekend, series star Tarek El Moussa informed fans on Saturday.

In an Instagram post that included a video greeting from the contractor, El Moussa said that the contractor’s “body is shutting down.”

In his post, El Moussa pleaded with fans to pray for the contractor.

“Please please pray for Frank!! This amazing man made this video a week ago for all the amazing people who have supported him and also donated,” El Moussa wrote. “As I write this he is being rushed to the hospital so we need to all pray for him. His body is shutting down and I know he would love to be read the supportive comments from his fans and motivate him to fight!”

“He’s not doing well so now is the time to let him hear how much he is LOVED,” the star of the HGTV reality series continued. “Frank I love you like a brother man I really do.”

In May, El Moussa told fans that the contractor has been fighting “multiple cancers.”

In his own message, the contractor said that his cancer “has grown and spread” to the point where it has become inoperable.

“After three cycles of radiation and chemo the cancer has grown and spread. Now it’s inoperable due to being too close to my carotid artery,” the contractor wrote.

Later in the month, the contractor offered an update on his condition, saying that he was undergoing a tracheotomy after his airway began to close.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for Miller’s treatment.


Cancer has been an unsettlingly large presence among the “Flip or Flop” team in recent years. Tarek El Moussa was diagnosed with thyroid cancer after a registered nurse emailed the show’s production company in 2013 to suggest that El Moussa get a medical checkup for a large nodule on his thyroid, according to The Independent.

The reality star revealed earlier this year that, a month after being told he had thyroid cancer, he was also diagnosed with testicular cancer.
