‘Flip or Flop’ Star Tarek El Moussa Gives Update on Cancer-Stricken Series Contractor

Contractor is ”a beast and standing“ despite fighting multiple cancers

“Flip or Flop” contractor Frank “the Tank” Miller is on his feet — and on the move.

Tarek El Moussa, star of the hit HGTV series, hit up Instagram on Tuesday to give an update on Miller, who’s battling inoperable cancer.

In his Instagram post, El Moussa called Miller “a beast.”

“LOOK WHO I FOUND TODAY!!!!” the reality TV star wrote. “Frank the tank is a beast and standing!! He knows hoe important it is to share his story and give other cancer fighters hope!”

El Moussa divulged that he and Miller did an interview with the Lazarex Cancer Foundation, which hopes to get Miller into clinical trials as he continues to battle cancer.

“This organization is doing everything they can and are even getting him in clinical trials…..today was the longest he’s been out of the house in two years and made it all the way to LA.,” El Moussa wrote.

The HGTV star also shared an inspirational message that Miller conveyed while there.

In May, El Moussa — who himself has battled both thyroid and testicular cancer — 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.

In July, El Moussa updated fans, noting that Miller had been rushed to the hospital and that the contractor’s “body is shutting down.”

However, earlier this month, El Moussa said that Miller was “doing better” since being hospitalized.

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