Actress Sofia Vergara successfully battled thyroid cancer in 2002, and has gone on to star as Gloria in the hit ABC comedy "Modern Family." Vergara told Parade magazine, "I've been through it all, so I don't take life's little dramas too seriously. I say, don't sweat the small stuff, because there's bigger stuff that can really make you sweat."
