Brooke has remained calm and strong throughout the process for the sake of her daughters and has said she wants to use her terrifying ordeal to teach them the right way to respond to adversity.
She added to People magazine, “I had to stay calm for them. My kids even asked me if I thought I was going to die.
“If I can turn it into something positive, or if I can teach my girls, yes, things will happen in your life, and how you react will define you, and adversity will reveal you. It won’t get you as much as it will reveal to you, because you see who you are. You see what you are made of.
‘Especially women. I want them to know that they deserve to feel good about themselves and be healthier, happier and bigger, to live a bigger life.”

“At least I’m a fighter.
“I’m the only one who will get through this. My career has actually been like that. A door is slammed in my face and I look for another. It’s no different from how I felt when I wrote about postpartum depression in 2005. This is my journey, and if I had to break the biggest bone in my body, recovery is something I want to share. We must believe in ourselves and encourage each other.
“There’s no other way to get through life, period.”
