Dancing with the Stars: Brooke Burke Undergoing Surgery for Thyroid Cancer
The co-host of hit reality show Dancing with the Stars, Brooke Burke, has revealed that she is to undergo throat surgery for throat cancer.
She broke the news in a video on her blog this week, explaining that she would have a scar right across her neck, and that she wanted fans to hear about it from her first, so that no-one would “get the wrong idea.”
She added: “Actually, I’ve never felt better, that’s what’s so crazy about this whole thing.”
But while the outlook is very promising, Burke also realizes that she will need to take time to get to grips with the illness, and “be in an out of control situation while I’m very used to feeling in control.”
But, she stressed: “I’m going to make a positive out of this negative thing. I’m ready to deal with it and I feel really strong.”
And it’s true that thyroid cancer is one of the most treatable cancers, with a very high success rate.
We still don’t know yet how exactly this will impact Dancing with the Stars. But a statement to press did state that her work schedule would not be affected. We wish you well, Brooke.
