She is not alone as she struggles with thyroid cancer.
Her entire family as well as her Dancing with the Stars family will be supporting her.
“She knows my love and support are with [her],” Tom Bergeron, her co-host on DWTS said on Thursday. “We’re all right there with her.”
“I’ve known about this for a few months, and I told her at the time she first told me that I’ve had experience with this in my family,” he said. “You never want to hear the word ‘cancer,’ but thyroid cancer is one of the most treatable cancers. It has an incredibly high success rate.”
Burke-Charvet is worried about the scarring of her neck because of the procedure but Bergeron says, “In the hands of a very good surgeon, as I’m sure she has one, [the scar] doesn’t necessarily have to be that visible.”
“I’m ready to deal with it, and I’m going to be fine. I feel really, really strong,” she said positively.
