On Monday, Giuliana Rancic appeared in an interview on the Today Show with an announcement that dropped jaws and made us very concerned for the E! News host: Giuliana is now in the early stages of battling breast cancer.
Giuliana’s STYLE network reality series, Giuliana and Bill, allows us to follow her struggle to become pregnant, something she wants more than anything, leading her to go under IVF treatment. It was through this treatment that she found out about the cancer.
Before the third round of treatment, her doctor requested that she get a mammogram to be certain that the hormones had not encouraged any cancerous cells already in her body. Typically women are advised to have a mammogram at the age of 40, but it’s possible that this mammogram saved Giuliana’s life at 36. With no family history of this cancer, the news came as a complete shock to her and her family.
Thursday the star underwent surgery, a double lumpectomy, to rid her of the cancer. The surgery will be followed by six weeks of radiation treatment. The E! network revealed that she is expected to have a “swift and complete recovery.”
In her interview on the Today Show she also stated that after this battle she would continue to try to become pregnant. Perhaps this baby did, indeed, save her life.
Breast cancer does not discriminate. Blissful Belle recently posted that the month of October is breast cancer awareness month. Be sure to find out how you can detect it early!
