Kate Micucci has verified that she is cancer-free, only days after revealing her illness.
The Big Bang Theory star disclosed last week that she was battling lung cancer by releasing a video of herself in the hospital.
In a new TikTok video, the 43-year-old thanked everyone for their messages of support before announcing the good news.
‘Hey everyone! I just wanted to thank you all so much for the good wishes and all the love that I have received this past week,’ she began.
‘It meant so much to me and really came at a time that I really needed it so thank you.
‘I have great news, which is that I am cancer free! The surgery last week went great. All the reports came back that it worked – I don’t need to do any other treatment.
‘Big thank yous to all my doctors and nurses and everyone that took really great care of me. And thanks to figuring it out early because I am very, very, very lucky and I know that.’
‘I’m just really grateful that things worked out as they did,’ she continued. I’m feeling really good today and I’m honestly just so excited and truly grateful.
‘Thank you all for all the prayers and wishes. I’m just glad I can report some good news to you.’
Kate concluded the video with sweet footage of her son, as she declared: ‘I’m excited to hang with my little boy for Christmas.’
Fans were ecstatic with the news and hurried to express their joy in the comments section below.
‘That’s fantastic news! You make the world so much better by being in it,’ a follower wrote.
One agreed: ‘You’re human sunshine and I am so glad everything looks great for you.’
‘Oh my goodness thank you for the update. Take care of yourself. Merry Christmas,’ a follower urged.
‘So happy for you! What a Christmas present! Hope everything stays all right,’ another agreed.
A TikTok user added, ‘So glad to hear it went well. All the best to you.’
Lung cancer is one of the most lethal tumours in the United States, although the prognosis is significantly better when detected early.
According to the NHS, people who are detected early are roughly 20 times more likely to live for five years than those who are diagnosed later.
Kate, who has also been in Scooby Doo and Scrubs, announced her ailment on social media just a few weeks ago, declaring that she had never smoked a cigarette in her life.
She also used the opportunity to reassure her fans that doctors discovered the disease’really early.’
‘I’m in the hospital …because I had lung cancer surgery yesterday. They caught it really early,’ the actress told viewers.
‘The greatest news is they caught it early, they got it out, I’m all good. It’s been a little bit of a trip.’
