She has known for a few months now, but Brooke Burke has just revealed to the rest of us in a heartbreaking youtube video that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
We hate that this has happened — and that cancer exists at all, for anyone — but we're glad that if she has to have cancer she has one of the types with the highest battle success rates. We just can't imagine what it's like for her, regardless. Every type of cancer is terrifying.
In the video (above) she's about as raw as she can get while explaining her situation.
Brooke is such a beautiful person, inside and out. She deserves all of our hopes, prayers, and well-wishes.
Good luck, Brooke. We know you can get through this.
