Giuliana Rancic said Monday that she has breast cancer.
The popular E! News and Style Network host, 36, told Today’s Ann Curry that she’s in the early stages of the disease. Come inside to read more…..
Rancic — who’s married to former Apprentice winner Bill Rancic — said doctors discovered the tumor during a mammogram while she was undergoing another round of in-vitro fertilization in an effort to get pregnant.
She says her doctor insisted she undergo a mammogram even though she’s only 36 because the surge of hormones during pregnancy can accelerate cancer.
Rancic says she’ll undergo surgery this week and then have six weeks of radiation therapy.
Rancic said doctors gave her a good prognosis on her chances of beating the deadly disease, and that her husband Bill has been “unbelievable” in staying by her side throughout the tough times.
“The best thing about Bill is, he lets me cry when I want to cry,” Rancic said.
Rancic added she “still [wants] this baby … because this baby has saved my life. I truly feel God was looking out after me … If I had gotten pregnant later down the line, I could have been a lot sicker.”
Giuliana & Bill airs on The Style Network Mondays at 8/7c.
