Brooke Burke - Brooke Burke Reveals Cancer in YouTube Video

Brooke Burke has revealed that she has thyroid cancer. The Dancing With The Stars co-host posted a video on YouTube yesterday (Thursday November 8, 2012), revealing the news of her condition and her plans for surgery.

She begins the video by apologising for not following up the news after she had her biopsy (when the nodule was discovered on her thyroid) before explaining tat the last few months had been about “a whole lotta research and a whole lotta doctors’ appointments.”

Brooke Burke-Charvet then goes on to explain that she is required to have a thyroidectomy, which means that she will be left with a large scar across her neck. “I didn’t want anybody to read about it and get the wrong idea, or think that I’m sick,” she explains. “I’ve never felt better – that’s what so crazy about this whole thing,” she says in the video and adds “I never, ever, ever thought I was going to get that phone call with bad news.

Brooke admits in the video that it has taken her a few months to get her head around the idea that she has cancer and explains that she has gone through stages of denial (“I didn’t even tell my mum, I didn’t tell anyone,” she admits) but insists that she’s “ready to deal with it” and that she’s “going to be fine.” The video ends with a link to the cancer charity website standuptocancer.org. It’s been viewed over 123,000 already and hundreds of fans have left messages of support for the TV star.
