Brooke Burke Charvet, winner of “Dancing with the Stars” season 7 and now a co-host, announced this week she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

“Long story. I got my results back and they were not good,” she said in the video posted on her ModernMom blog. “I need to have thyroid surgery, which means that I am going to have a nice big scar, right here, across my neck.”

The 41-year-old actress says she feels optimistic. “I feel really good… I’ve never felt better, that’s what’s so crazy about this whole thing” and vows to “make a positive out of this negative thing.”
