"My family is everything to me and I feel like they saw me through this," she reveals. Initially, Brittany wanted to keep her health scare private -- but now that she is cancer-free, the actress wants to share her story to help others in alike situations.
"I want to let people know it is absolutely possible to get through something like this," she says. "I want people to know they are not alone."
