Big congratulations are in order for Brooke Burke-Charvet! After announcing that she had thyroid cancer during Dancing With the Stars Season 15 All-Stars, then keeping her fans updated about her operation, Brooke announced today (December 12) that she is officially cancer-free!

“I just got the results back from all of my tests and great news,” Brooke wrote on ModernMom.com. “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.”

We’re so happy for the effervescent DWTS co-host! She also talks about how different her life in recovery is from the busy, whirlwind life she’s used to as a working mother. But she intends to listen to her doctor’s orders about laying low and not jumping right back into chaos.

“In a weird way, it's kind of the perfect ending to a very busy year,” she says. “I've taken the rest of the year off to recover and catch up with my family and now we're just celebrating life.”

Our warmest wishes go out to Brooke and her family this holiday season.

Dancing With the Stars Season 16 premieres March 18, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
