In an emotional message to fans, Brooke Burke revealed that she is currently battling thyroid cancer.
The "Dancing with the Stars" co-host posted to her Modern Mom blog on Tuesday to explain her condition (November 8).
Back in July, the 41-year-old dancer's doctors found a nodule on her neck and tests revealed disappointing results.
Though she's due to undergo thyroid surgery and a thyroidectomy, "which means that I'm going to have a nice big scar here across my neck," Brooke is keeping her spirits up. She confides, "I feel really good… I’ve never felt better. I'm ready to deal with it, and I'm going to be fine. And I feel really strong."
