Burke Charvet has spent the last several days recuperating, but took time to pen a blog for fans concerned for her wellbeing.

"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," she wrote. "So I'm hoping that this is the end of the story. Woohoo!!! And thank God."

She went on to acknowledge that her cancer battle led her to gain "a new found respect for life".

"Every day I'm feeling better and I'm looking forward to getting back to my usual routine, but with a bit of a different outlook," Burke Charvet explained.

"I've never been one to take life for granted and it sounds so cliché to say it, but this whole thyroid experience has given my family such a scare that it seems to have brought us all closer."

Burke Charvet is expected to resume public appearances in January by co-hosting the 2013 Miss America pageant with Chris Harrison.
