(LOS ANGELES) — Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet says she has undergone surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid and is recovering well.
“Thank God it’s over. I’m clean, surgery went well and I can talk. Losing my voice was my biggest fear,” the mother of four tweeted after surgery. “Thanks for all your prayers and light.”
Still, surgery was tough for the 41-year-old. It “feels like I got hit by a car,” she tweeted.
Burke-Charvet announced via YouTube last month that she had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer after a routine physical.
