Giuliana Rancic Breast Cancer

Following her double lumpectomy last month, Giuliana Rancic says she’s feeling ‘good’ and is ‘very optimistic’

Giuliana Rancic shocked the world last month when she revealed she had been diagnosed with the early stages of breast cancer. The 36-year-old host quickly underwent surgery and was back to work on E! News within less than a week. Now, four weeks after her double lumpectomy, Giuliana says she’s on her way to recovery, thanks in large part to all the support from her family, friends and fans.

“I’m good. I’m hanging in there. I have good days and bad days, but so far so good,” Giuliana told PARADE magazine. “I’m very optimistic and I’m just happy to have caught it early. I think that’s really the most important thing. Early detection means so much. I want women to make sure they’re taking care of their health and being proactive.”

With a reality show on the Style Network co-starring her husband, Bill Rancic, much of Giuliana’s life has played out on the small screen for all to see, but she says it’s been rewarding in many ways. “It’s worth it to kind of sacrifice some of my personal life to help others,” she explained.

The outgoing TV personality also said the support she’s received from her fans and friends in the business has been overwhelmingly positive.

“I know it sounds so cliché, but I think it helped me recover quicker and it got me in better spirits,” Giuliana raved. “The word I kept seeing over and over again was ‘strong.’ ‘Be strong, you’re strong.’ That word has never meant so much to me as it has this past month. I owe that all to the people behind me.”

Our best wishes and thoughts are with Giuliana and Bill during this tough time. We cannot wait to hear the news when she’s  safely in remission!
