Last month, Brooke Burke took it upon herself to announce that she has Thyroid Cancer, and while the disease is frightening, she's keeping a smile on her face as she heads into surgery this week.
Earlier today, the Dancing With the Stars co-host took to her Facebook to thank her fans for all the support, she wrote:
"I am touched and appreciative to all of you for sharing your positive wishes for my surgery, and for sharing many of your personal thyroid experiences. I really do read your comments and they all mean a lot to me. I’m getting ready this week for my surgery and am planning on a speedy recovery. I’ll be posting some new blogs on ModernMom.com about how I’ve been dealing with it all and how my family has been handling it too. What a crazy time, but I am surrounded with love and support and that really makes a world of difference. Thank you for following me and for all your thoughts and prayers. I feel it, truly, and your energy outweighs my stress! From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Xoxoxo - Brooke"
Miz Burke is definitely a STRONG woman for opening up about the big C, and we have nothing but love for how much of a phenomenal job she's doing with her situation.
We know the GAWRGEOUS mama will get through her thyroidectomy and thyroid surgery with nothing but pure grace.
Good luck girly!
