Back in 2013, a nurse named Ryan Reed reached out to his production company to let them know Tarek’s thyroid was enlarged and that he should see a doctor.

“I freaked out,” he explained. “It turned out I had thyroid cancer. Did more testing. Found out I had testicular cancer. This nurse Ryan she saved my life. I'm really lucky. She saved me.”

He also shared what he learned from the experience. Watch.
