Hey All! Keep your thoughts and prayers with Brooke Burke Charvet! This week the Dancing With The Stars co-host is preparing to have her thyroid removed. As previously reported, a nodule was discovered on her thyroid and after a series of tests, it was determined to be cancerous. Below is what she wrote at her Facebook yesterday in preparation….
To My Wonderful FB Fans,
I am touched and appreciative to all of you for sharing your positive wishes for my surgery, and for sharing many of your personal thyroid experiences. I really do read your comments and they all mean a lot to me. I’m getting ready this week for my surgery and am planning on a speedy recovery. I’ll be posting some new blogs on ModernMom.com about how I’ve been dealing with it all and how my family has been handling it too. What a crazy time, but I am surrounded with love and support and that really makes a world of difference. Thank you for following me and for all your thoughts and prayers. I feel it, truly, and your energy outweighs my stress! From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Xoxoxo – Brooke
All the best and stay strong Brooke!!

ADDING: US Weekly interviewed Brooke on her upcoming surgery. She explains how she told her children. She also says she’s not afraid anymore. More below and at the link. Her strength is incredible and so inspiring….
So I’ve stocked the house up, I’ve done all my grocery shopping, I’ve made a few meals and the fridge is stocked with leftovers. I’ve organized all my children’s schedules and downloaded a few books,” she said. “I’ve packed my bag; I’m pretty much prepared and ready . . . with a lot of faith, a hopeful mind and the intent to have a speedy recovery.”
“I’m not afraid anymore,” she added. “I think I’ve been dealing with it so much the past couple months that now I’m ready to just get it done and put this behind me. My only need is being ok for my husband and my children so they don’t have to go through any pain and making this as easy as possible for them.”
