Tarek El Moussa is “cancer free” — and so is his stepdad!

The Flip or Flop star, 35, revealed in February that he “thought he was gonna die” after he was diagnosed with testicular cancer just one month after finding out he had thyroid cancer.

He revealed on the TODAY show that his stepfather was receiving chemotherapy to combat the disease as well, but now has good news for his fans.

“As many of you know my stepfather battled the same cancer I did... and now, after a few rounds of chemo, he is cancer free and in remission!!” he shared alongside a photo of his stepdad with kids Taylor, 6, and Brayden, 1.

“He's gaining weight... getting his hair back... and back to his old self,” he added. “Cancer is so scary and the best thing a cancer survivor can hear is in remission!!!! The grandkids love him so much.”

Tarek’s thyroid cancer has been in remission as of January, but he recently battled another family scare.

His ex, Christina, 35, rushed their son to the hospital earlier this week after the toddler fell into her pool.

Sources close to the couple told that she was being “overly cautious” and wanted to get him checked for fluid in his lungs, prompting CPS to question her. But, the authorities declined to pursue any other action.
