Before she decided to share her breast cancer story, Giuliana Rancic wanted to undergo the ordeal without telling anyone — even her closest friends

Giuliana Rancic has been more than open about her battle with breast cancer. Through each phase, the 37-year-old entertainment host has kept her fans updated on how she’s feeling, the process and most importantly, what they can do to help themselves. However, Giuliana told HollywoodLife.com she wasn’t always planning on sharing her experience with anyone at all.

“There was definitely a period of time when we thought, we’ll probably keep this a secret…forever,” she told us last week in Los Angeles. “And then, I don’t know, it’s just not my personality. I kept thinking to myself, ‘Gosh, I wish I could tell my friends what I’m going through or girls at work, just because I wanted to tell them to get checked and tell them, ‘Hey guys, if this can happen to me, then it could happen to you!'”

She added, “I knew I would never be able to keep this a secret because I was armed with this incredible knowledge that if you can just find breast cancer early enough you can be totally fine and healed.”

As a precautionary measure, Giuliana is undergoing her double mastectomy early this week, but is expected to be fully recovered in time for New Year’s Eve, as she’ll be hosting the NIVEA Kiss Platform in New York City alongside her husband, Bill Rancic.

To learn more about Giuliana’s fight, the couple’s New Year’s resolution and more, watch the entire interview above.

Our thoughts and well wishes go out to the Rancic’s during this difficult time.
