HOT: Giuliana Rancic Speaks Out about Breast Cancer Diagnosis
E! News host and reality star Giuliana Rancic has never been one to keep quiet about her personal life. After all, she’s chronicled her emotional and physical struggles with infertility on her show “Giuliana and Bill” with total candor. However, when she appeared on The Today Show earlier this week to reveal some breaking news, no one anticipated the bomb she was about to drop: rather than announcing she had finally gotten pregnant, she shared that she had just been diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. While many stars have fought the battle against this terrible disease, Giuliana chose to share her story because of her unique situation: she’s only 36, so a mammogram would not be a part of a routine physical, and her doctor discovered the cancer in the process of getting her ready for another round of in-vitro fertilization. Giuliana’s story is a cautionary tale: you’re never too young to be one of the 12% of women who will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime. And thanks to Giuliana’s openness, we’ve been reminded of the importance of raising awareness among women of all ages.
