Brooke Burke’s cancer scare is over! In heartening news the 41 year-old actress and former Dancing With The Stars winner took to website Modern Mom to assure fans that a recent thyroidectomy has gone well and that she is now on the road to recovery.
In what’s been a bit of a whirlwind for Burke and her fans, she only announced on November 8 that she had thyroid cancer; so it’s great to read that she’s managed to sort the illness out as soon as possible. Writing in a blog post, she said “I just got the results back from all of my tests and great news – the thyroid cancer has been removed from my body and all my lymph nodes are clear. So I’m hoping that this is the end of the story. Woohoo!!! And thank GOD!”
In a post that brimmed with positivity, she added “Every day I’m feeling better and I’m looking forward to getting back to my usual routine, but with a bit of a different outlook. I’ve never been one to take life for granted and it sounds so cliché to say it, but this whole thyroid experience has given my family such a scare that it seems to have brought us all closer.” We’ll raise a hearty toast to that, and look forward to seeing the star back in work soon.
