E! Entertainment’ Giuliana Rancic has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The 37-year-old TV host has made the announcement on the Today Show on Monday. The TV icon has discovered the condition in August.
Giuliana and her husband Bill, who star in the reality with the same name – Giuliana and Bill – have been trying to get pregnant for a while. But on her third attempt to having a baby through in vitro fertilization, the E! News host has made a discovery she was not prepared for. The doctors found that she had breast cancer.
Rancic gave the news to An Curry on Monday, during the Today Show. She explained how her doctor wanted her to make some tests before undergoing the in vitro fertilization process again. She says that the doctor said that the pregnancy hormones given in the treatment can accelerate a cancer. So she did her first mammogram at 37 years old, which she never thought she would do. “I wasn’t prepared to get a mammogram until I was 40 years old”, Rancic confessed and added that even so, “I never in my wildest dreams expected anything to be wrong”. She says that no one in her family had breast cancer.
When talking about how she received the news about the cancer, she says that “it was like the world just crashed around me.” She was still very emotional when talking on TV about it, even though there have been several weeks since she found out. However, she explains that the disease is at an early stage and thus, treatable. “I’m doing surgery this coming week, and then I go to radiation for six and a half weeks.”
Her husband Bill was very supportive of his wife throughout these days. “He lets me cry when I want to cry. He just lets me feel what I want to feel”, she gushed about her “unbelievable” husband.
