“Flip or Flop” star Tarek El Moussa says that he was “absolutely sick” when he was battling with cancer. On Thursday, he shared an Instagram post where he wrote:


[The cancer] took a major toll on my physical and mental health. I know many of my fans have had similar struggles and can relate. The last 3 years were the hardest of my life, I look back and still wonder how I survived… I never quit although I wanted to thousands of times all day every day.

Fans of the show were shocked when Tarek and his wife Christina announced at the end of last year that they were separating after seven years of marriage. The couple’s separation came in the wake of a domestic dispute involving a firearm. The star also stated that while he was battling cancer, he lost sixty pounds but that now he’s in the “best shape” of his life.

I thought I would share this with everyone… to truly understand how absolutely sick I was.. look at this photo and look at my eyes, I was a skeleton. This took a major toll on my physical and mental health. I know many of my fans have had similar struggles and can relate. The last 3 years were the hardest of my life, I look back and still wonder how I survived… I never quit although I wanted to thousands of times all day every day. This is from hurting my back after battling 2 cancers.. I had a 60 pound weight swing from my illnesses…I'm proud to say I didn't quit and I'm in the best shape of my life!! For everyone struggling right now from any situation.. remember… keep your head up and don't quit! There is light at the end of the tunnel, stay strong! T
