“Flip or Flop” contractor Frank Miller was rushed to the hospital late last month due to a worsening condition. Fortunately, things have started to turn on a positive note.

Tarek El Moussa, one of the show’s stars, posted an update on Instagram last week, saying Miller is “doing better.” The update came after he was asked by one of his followers how Frank was doing. The post was originally about Tarek getting sick and his kids buying him medicines.

“When #daddy is sick and my babies go shopping to get me medicine!!! They are just too cute!! I’m just sad they can’t be around me because I’m sick,” wrote Tarek on the post that showed his two kids in the grocery.

Last month, Miller was taken to the hospital, as his health was reportedly declining. Tarek quickly took to Instagram to update the fans of Miller’s condition, and again asked for prayers and financial support.

“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,” Tarek explained. “He’s not doing well so now is the time to let him hear how much he is LOVED. Frank I love you like a brother man I really do,” he added.

“The Tank,” as Miller is fondly called, is currently battling forms of cancer that are reportedly aggressive in nature. Tarek said that Miller was already fighting for his life and that he was already administered with feeding tubes.

Tarek put up a GoFundMe account to raise support for Miller’s ballooning medical expenses. The El Moussas gave $5,000 to kick-start the fundraiser. The current predicament of Miller is somewhat similar to what Tarek had gone through a few years ago. He was also diagnosed with two types of cancer last year, and even lost as much as 60 pounds of weight.

Tarek is currently in remission for both cancers and is busy shooting for the seventh season of “Flip or Flop” in HGTV.
