Brooke Burke-Charvet Cancer-Free: 'DWTS' Host Reveals Thyroid Surgery Was A Success

Just seven days after undergoing thyroid cancer surgery, Brooke Burke-Charvet received some wonderful news.

The 41-year-old revealed that she's cancer-free:
"I just got the results back from all of my tests and great news - the thyroid cancer has been removed from my body and all my lymph nodes are clear. So I'm hoping that this is the end of the story. Woohoo!!! And thank GOD!" she wrote on her blog on Modern Mom.

The "Dancing with the Stars" host and mother of four said she's been at home resting and catching up on TV, which she says she never has time to do.

"Having movie marathons and I've almost made it through the entire season of Showtime's hit show Homeland. I can't remember the last time I lost myself in someone else's story," she wrote.

Burke, who first revealed her cancer diagnosis at the beginning of November, wrote that in a "weird way, it's kind of the perfect ending to a very busy year. I've taken the rest of the year off to recover and catch up with my family and now we're just celebrating life. I never thought a mandatory vacation would be under these circumstances but it's nice to quiet the noise and enjoy the R&R and stay home for a change."
