December 04, 2012 07:30 AM by Lisa Princ

It’s been just shy of one month since Brooke Burke Charvet of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars announced that she is battling thyroid cancer. Yesterday, Brooke revealed to her fans that she is gearing up for her surgery, which is set to take place this week. Details inside!

Brooke Burke Charvet announced last month that she was battling thyroid cancer, as she took to YouTube and told the world: “I need to have thyroid surgery and a thyroidectomy. I never ever, ever thought I was going to get that phone call with bad news.” And apparently Brooke wants to get the surgery over with before the holidays, as she revealed that she is preparing for it this week.

“I’m getting ready this week for my surgery and am planning on a speedy recovery. What a crazy time, but I am surrounded with love and support and that really makes a world of difference,” Burke Charvet posted on her Facebook page yesterday.

Declining to go into too much detail about the upcoming procedure, there is one thing that Brooke Burke Charvet did want all her fans to know – that she is grateful for all the love and support! “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 feel your thoughts and prayers, truly, and your energy outweighs my stress! From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”

We wish Brooke Burke Charvet a quick and easy recovery. Many prayers and well wishes to Brooke and her family during this trying time. Comment below to share your well wishes for her!

    The only thing she’s “battling” is the greedy quacks who gave her the “diagnoses”. Their great surgey and chemo “treatments” harm the body far more than they help.

    They usually pick on the gullible and easily tricked for their victims. She must not be the sharpest tool in the shed.

    My mom had her over active thyroid removed @ 36 years ago. The metal verticle eye shaped stitches looked pretty bad initically but, in spite of being a smoker & not using sunscreen, the scar later was a very thin, barely visible line. The thyroid pill she takes daily is tiny & if you miss it one day you just take two the next. Best wishes to Brooke.

    My best wishes for a speedy recovery. I had my thyroid out 52 years ago (preop diagnosis was cancer of the thyroid, but turned out not tobe) and took thyroid pills for 25 years but then was taken off them and have been fine ever since. I did lose my voice for 9 weeks, but it came back stronger than ever.

    Good luck–I know you will come out of this on top
