'Flip or Flop' Stars Plead With Fans to Help Save Cancer-Stricken Series Regular

Christina El Moussa says contractor Frank Miler's "medical bills are becoming unbearable"

"Flip or Flop" stars Tarek and Christina El Moussa are enlisting fans of the series to help a show regular who's fallen on hard times.

Both Christina and Tarek El Moussa took to Instagram on Monday, urging fans to donate money in aid of "Flip or Flop" contractor Frank "The Tank" Miller, who's been diagnosed with two types of "very aggressive" cancer.

"PLEASE PLEASE WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SAVE A LIFE!!! Our contractor Frank Miller from Flip or Flop is battling 2 very very aggressive cancers, really bad ones, he's fighting for his life out of feeding tubes!! His medical bills have become unattainable and we need your help to try and save Frank's life .... any donation helps whether its 1$ or 100$ dollars anything will help this amazing man," Tarek El Moussa wrote on his Instagram page. "We love him so much that Christina and I our [sic] donating $5,000.00 to his go fund me account to start it."

Christina El Moussa, meanwhile, added, "Our contractor, Frank Miller, from #fliporflop is battling two very serious forms of cancer and his medical bills are becoming unbearable. Please click the link in my bio and donate... every little bit helps. Thank you from Tarek, Frank and I."

Both reality TV stars provided a link to a GoFundMe page set up to accept donations for Miller.

In May, Tarek El Moussa shared a message from Miller with his Instagram followers, in which Miller divulged that his cancer had 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.

Cancer is a grim, familiar presence to the "Flip or Flop" family. Tarek El Moussa was diagnosed with thyroid cancer after a registered nurse emailed the show's production company in 2013 to suggest that 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.

In January, El Moussa gave fans an update on his condition, writing on Instagram that he was still free of cancer.
