Former Supermodel Angie Everhart Diagnosed With Thyroid Cancer

Former supermodel Angie Everhart has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

"Word has been trickling out about Angie Everhart's health," her publicist says in a statement. "She wants to set the record straight by letting everyone know that it is true that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, however the prognosis is very good."

Everhart, who is a single parent to her 3-year-old son, will undergo surgery on Tuesday.

"She expects to be back to work and to mommy duties in a few weeks," the publicist continues. "The most important reason she is revealing this information is to encourage people to learn about cancer prevention, its signs and treatment immediately."

"She would also like to thank those who have provided such tremendous support."

Looking back on her Twitter, Everhart, 43, may have been thinking about the diagnosis when she said the following last week: "I'm reflecting on my life these days. I have been sooo lucky, super happy, but nothing beats being a MOM!! I love you Kayden!!"
