Brooke Burke-Charvet is breathing a sigh of relief after her thyroid surgery on Wednesday was a success.
And the ”Dancing with the Stars” co-host is keeping her fans updated on her progress.
“I’m resting, recovering,” she tweeted Thursday, a day after her operation. “Surgery went well. Dr Adashek is a genius. Thx Dr! Feels like I got hit [by] a car :(”
The 41-year-old mom added: ”Thank God it’s over. I’m clean, surgery went well & I can talk. Losing My voice was my biggest fear. Thx for all your prayers & light.”
The gorgeous star also posted the photo above on her WhoSay page. “Made it through my surgery, Thank God! so far so good F#@k Cancer! I’m recovering, I’m strong, I’m grateful for my brilliant Doctors,” the accompanying caption read.
We always endeavor to leave the day on a good note with something cute or inspirational. But sometimes, things hit us so hard– like this clip from Eric McLean, who is only 28, and who has filmed a poignant goodbye, after relapsing for the SEVENTH time with cancer.
In this heartbreaking video, he thanks his friends, family and doctors, saying he “fought to the end.”
McLean has been making video updates about his cancer fight for the past three years. He called his 109th video, posted Aug. 14, “Eric’s Confession Final.”
“We got some really bad news last week, and there’s nothing we can do. Ninety-six percent of my cerebral nervous system is cancerous. My sciatic nerve right now is being crushed by cancer so badly, I am in some of the worst pain you can imagine,” he says on the video.
This… shatters our heart into a million little pieces…
Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch, better known to his fans as ”MCA”, has passed away.
He was 47.
Yauch was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his left salivary gland in July 2009.
“So this is crazy,” he said in a video statement at the time on the band’s official website. “I have some pretty heavy news … I actually have a form of cancer.”
In 2011 it had been reported that Yauch had beaten the disease, but he claimed these reprots were “exaggerated”. On the band’s website he wrote:
“Hello My Friends While I’m grateful for all the positive energy people are sending my way, reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated. I’m continuing treatment, staying optimistic and hoping to be cancer free in the near future.”
It appeared in recent months, that his health took a turn for the worst, and he was notably absent at the Beastie Boys’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland on March 14.
Yauch co-founded the group with friends Michael (Mike D) Diamond and Adam (Ad-Rock) Horovitz in 1979 as a punk band, before transitioning into rap in the mid-80s.
Russell Simmons’ website GlobalGrind.com were the first to report the news of Yauch’s sad passing
