Brooke Burke has revealed that she is battling thyroid cancer, and will be undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous nodule on her thyroid gland.
The mother-of-four made the revelation on Thursday, posting a video blog on her website. She told her fans that she’s “ready to deal” with the disease.
Brooke ignored the nodule for eight months. The 41-year-old said that she’s ready. “I’m going to be a good patient and do everything I’m supposed to do.”
The ‘Dancing With the Stars’ host said, “Now I’m good and I’m ready to deal with it and I’m going to be fine. I feel really, really strong. Doctors say that this is a “good kind of cancer to have.” That sounds so crazy. But my doctor did tell me that this is a happily ever after ending kind of thing.”
