"Dancing with the Stars” co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet is opening up about her battle with thyroid cancer.
Burke-Charvet posted a YouTube video on Thursday explaining how she found out there was something wrong inside her body. “I went for a regular physical and that’s how I discovered this,” explained Burke-Charvet. She then went on to say, “I feel really good and I’ve actually never felt better. That’s what so crazy about this whole thing.”
After countless doctors’ appointments, tests and second opinions, Burke-Charvet says she booked her operation to have a thyroidectomy and will have a large scar across her neck afterwards. “I don’t get to walk around and pretend like nothing happened -- or not follow-up or not share it because it is going to be pretty much dead center.”
Through it all, Burke-Charvet vows to do two things, “I’m just going to make a positive out of this really negative thing and I am going to be a really good patient.”
