Brooke Burke-Charvet’s troubling diagnosis of thyroid cancer isn’t slowing her down.
Even with an upcoming surgery and a thyroidectomy, the Dancing with the Stars co-host and mom has too much to live for in the moment.
“The stress and anxiety that I’ve been feeling is now outweighed by love and support, and it is overwhelming in the most beautiful way,” Burke-Charvet, 41, wrote Tuesday on the ModernMom blog in a post called “Feeling Great and Full of LOVE!”
Burke-Charvet has received an outpouring of encouragement from fans and loved ones since her brave decision to open up about her diagnosis in a ModernMom video last week.
“I want to assure everyone that my condition is manageable and I am taking all the proper steps. I never thought I would be applauded [for] my courage to share the news in a home video,” the TV host said.
Burke-Charvet promises to update fans on her road to recovery, and it looks like she’s already taking charge.
“Please know that I am totally okay,” she said. “I’m at work today getting ready for tonight’s live Dancing with the Stars show. I can feel all the love and support that has come from far and wide which makes me feel fantastic.”
She added, “No worries see you tonight!”
