Model-turned-actress Angie Everhart has been given the all-clear after undergoing surgery to treat cancer last week (begs13May13).

Joe Pesci's former fiancee recently revealed that she had been diagnosed with the disease in her thyroid gland and she went under the knife last Tuesday (14May13) to remove the cancerous cells.

Tests conducted following the operation have since come back negative - and the 43 year old couldn't be happier.

Taking to her page over the weekend (18-19May13), she wrote, "My Dr Called Me On A Sat. Morning To Tell Me I Am Cancer Free!!!!! wootothemotherf**kinhoo (sic)".

Expressing her gratitude for her fans' well wishes, she added, "Thanks Again Everyone!!! You have all been soooo kind and I'm over the moon relieved this nightmare is over!!!"
