According to Tom, he has known about Brooke’s thyroid cancer ”for a few months,” adding, “and I told her at the time she first told me that I've had experience with this in my family.…You never want to hear the word 'cancer,' but thyroid cancer is one of the most treatable cancers. It has an incredibly high success rate."
