It was a sad morning as I woke up the news reporting by Wetpaint.com of Brooke Burke Charvet revealing she has cancer.
Cancer is something I have so deeply been affected by and something as a mother, I have grown terrified of as I’ve gotten older. As a mom, I can’t even fathom hearing those words. I remember when Giuliana Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer through her infertility struggle and crying for her. As common as cancer is, it’s something you never expect to be affected by and something you never expect to wake up and hear more news of someone being diagnosed whether you know them personally or not.
It sounds like Brooke’s prognosis is good revealing the news via a video on her blog for Modern Mom.
“I got my results back and they were not good,” Brooke said. “I need to have thyroid surgery and a thyroidectomy. Which means I’m going to have a nice big scar right here across my neck.” (Wetpaint.com)
My heart goes out to Brooke and her whole family. I know what it’s like as a child to hear the news of your mom having cancer and my heart breaks for her, her husband, and their young children.
From one mom who has been greatly affected by cancer to another… stay strong and you have a lot of people praying for you.
