‘E! News’ Host Giuliana Rancic Is Battling Breast Cancer [VIDEO]
“Giuliana & Bill” starlet and “E! News” hostess, Giuliana Rancic, announced Monday on the “Today” show, that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The 36-year-old, who has been trying to get pregnant with her husband, Bill Rancic, opens up about the new battle in her life. She says, “That was definitely the hardest day. I went into the hospital in LA, and when they came in to tell me, they said it pretty quickly. And they just said, ‘I’m sorry. You have breast cancer.’”
Giuliana was hesitant at first about getting a mammogram, which later caught the cancer, because she’s always been told to wait until she was forty. Now she wants to spread the message on getting checked early. She says, “I think a lot of us think we’re invisible, and women these days, we’re busier than ever. We’re multitasking. We’re taking care of a million people a day and a million things a day. But we have to start putting ourselves on the to-do list.”
She will be undergoing surgery later this week and will be receiving radiation for 6 1/2 weeks. She’s so fortunate to have her husband as one of her biggest supporters. She says, “Bill is unbelievable. The best part about Bill is he lets me cry when I want to cry and doesn’t say, ‘Hey, look at that person who is worse off than you are.’ He just lets me feel what I’m feeling, and I think that’s very important for a spouse to do.”
Giuliana will get better, and as soon as she does, she’s getting right back on the “having a baby” horse. She says, “I’m not going to give up. I want that baby, and what’s amazing is that that baby will have saved my life.”
