Fox Sports' Jeannie Zelasko recovering from thyroid cancer sugery

Fox Sports anchor/reporter Jeanne Zelasko continues to recover at home in Northridge after 4½ hours of surgery last Friday to remove a cancerous tumor from her thyroid gland. She said she dodged a bullet as her doctor told her Wednesday that the pathology report looked great and the cancer was localized. That the fact the gland did not attach itself to the muscle meant they did not have to remove lymph nodes. Next up: Radiation treatment. "I'm great," she said. "I will sooner suffer death by flowers than this cancer stuff. The love via the florist has been overwhelming. And so appreciated."
