Giuliana Rancic: I Didn't Want To Look In The Mirror After My Mastectomy

Giuliana opens up about her personal struggle after her double mastectomy in a new interview with Glamour magazine.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Giuliana Rancic, a news anchor for E!, went through with a double mastectomy and deconstructive surgery on December 13, 2011. In the April 2012 issue of Glamour magazine, Giuliana discusses details about her experience.

While she was grateful for becoming a breast cancer survivor, the 37 year-old had personal struggles with the changes her double mastectomy would bring to her body.

“At first I didn’t want to look in the mirror, because I felt like, I’m getting better every day and this is about my health, so I shouldn’t get bogged down by what I see in the mirror. I knew I wasn’t going to look like a bikini model, so why look? Why even put the image in my head?”

Giuliana definitely proved she was strong and that she wouldn’t let anything bring her down when she went back to work only two weeks later, on December 27.

What’s next for Giuliana?

She and husband tell Glamour that they are looking into all their options for having kids, whether surrogacy or adoption, as well as plan to renew their vows on their five year anniversary in September.
