'New Year, New Time': Brooke Burke-Charvet Talks Beating Cancer (EXCLUSIVE)
The 'Dancing With the Stars' host says her health crisis is officially 'over.'
Dancing With the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet says she's feeling "great" about a month after completing treatment for thyroid cancer.
"I'm also really fortunate that everything went so well and that it's over. Honestly, it's kind of back to business as usual -- just a new part of the story, I guess."
"Certainly it was scary, especially for somebody like me; I feel like I have such a healthy lifestyle. Life is precious. I really decided to make it a positive [thing] and bring awareness to it. That's why I went public and shared my story.
"I plan to get involved in a big way, whether it's with children -- I'm looking at a children's cancer camp right now -- and just trying to decide what the best use of my time and message will be. I'm just very blessed and fortunate right now."
In the meantime, the 41-year-old beauty is staying busy as ever. On her list: teaming up with Kleenex for its Care Pack campaign, designed to help people get through this season's nasty cold and flu season with its many useful products.
"I've been a Kleenex brand fan for awhile; I use a lot of the products with my family," she said. "They asked me to help them kick off the celebrity surprise care package delivery … I actually showed up to someone's house [today], unannounced; his fiancé entered him in the sweepstakes and he won. He was a little under the weather. So I showed up with the cameras to surprise him and bring him a really nice care package. It was a very, very sweet gesture just to help his recovery be a little easier. It's got all kinds of goodies in there."
Brooke-Charvet also says she's looking forward to another dose of Dancing With the Stars, which kicks of season 16 on March 18.
"They do such a great job with the casting, so I have faith. But hopefully we'll get some shockers this season!"
