Brooke Burke-Charvet posted a video on her ModernMom.com blog today and revealed that she has thyroid cancer.
Last July, the Dancing With the Stars co-host had told fans that doctors found a nodule on her thyroid, but after further testing it was determined that she has cancer.
"Long story ... I got my results back and they were not good, and I need to have thyroid surgery and have a thyroidectomy, which means that I'm going to have a nice big scar right here across my neck," she revealed in her vlog. "And I don't get to just walk around and pretend like nothing happened and not follow up and not share it because it's gonna be pretty much dead center."
"Here's the way that I see it: I'm just going to make a positive out of this negative thing," she continues. "I'm going to be a really good patient and I'm gonna do everything I need to do."
Brooke later wrote on Twitter, "I'm feeling the love today from friends, family, #DWTS, tweeties, fans. You warm my heart. I'm feeling good Thank you from down deep xoxo," she tweeted. "I was scared to get on twitter and hear what people are saying.....now I can breathe easy. Thank you for your support."
