'Happy and rosy' Clare Balding in remission after cancer treatment

Thursday August 20, 2009

Sports presenter Clare Balding has revealed on her personal website that she is in remission from her thyroid cancer after undergoing radioactive treatment.

"Good news. I just wanted to let you all know that I received the results from my post-treatment scan and it looks as if the radioactive iodine has done its job and zapped all the nasty bits that needed zapping,’ the 38-year-old wrote.

"There are no signs of the thyroid cancer having spread anywhere else so all is looking happy and rosy in the world."

Clare, who was told in April that she had a cancerous cyst on her thyroid gland, also thanked fans for their support.

And it seems she's keen to throw herself back into her presenting duties.

"Now, it’s full steam ahead with a busy summer of work," she adds.
