Though the E! host beat breast cancer over two years ago, she’s still dedicated to helping other women fight the disease. Giuliana teamed up with Bright Pink and its founder, Lindsay Avner, who underwent double mastectomy surgery at the young age of 23, to host an amazing event on Sept. 29 promoting awareness for breast and ovarian cancer. So inspirational!

FabFest 2013, a day dedicated to fitness, wellness, pampering and of course educating women on risk prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer, was an outright success. With Giuliana Rancic, a breast cancer survivor herself, leading the activities with the help of Bright Pink, FabFest went off without a hitch — raising an unprecedented amount of awareness and an amazing amount of funds.

FabFest 2013: Bright Pink’s Inspirational Event

At the end of the day, FabFest, which was held at the Westin River North in Chicago, Ill., ended up raising $500,000. That half-million will be put to great use by Bright Pink, a group that was established in 2007, as they continue their mission as they educate and empower women everywhere to be proactive in surviving breast and ovarian cancer.

The incredible fund-raising efforts of FabFest were best symbolized by the mass breast self-exam led by Giuliana. Joined by Bright Pink’s founder, Lindsay Avner, who was the youngest woman ever in America to opt for a double mastectomy at the age of 23 in 2006, and Larsa Pippen, the wife of ex-NBA star Scottie, Giuliana led more than 600 women in conducting the exam — a record-breaking demonstration.

Giuliana Rancic & Bright Pink Raise Awareness

Giuliana looked totally stunning — and perfectly festive — in a sporty off-the-shoulder Bright Pink t-shirt and leggings, and just by looking at her face, you could tell how thrilled she was to be such a big part of raising breast and ovarian cancer awareness. After announcing that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer in Oct. 2011, Giuliana also bravely opted to undergo a double mastectomy like Lindsay. And even after beating the disease, Giuliana has inspiringly remained devoted to helping other women who have experienced the same thing.

We have to also voice our appreciation for Bright Pink. The organization’s tireless efforts to fight breast and ovarian cancer are truly making a difference — FabFest is just the beginning.

As expected, here as in all other events to raise breast cancer awareness, you never witness an effort to raise awareness among women on the known causes of breast cancer, such as medical x-rays (read the e-book “The Mammogram Myth: The Independent Investigation Of Mammography The Medical Profession Doesn’t Want You To Know About” by Rolf Hefti). The pink ribbon crowd and the medical industry continue to tell the public that only “risk factors” of breast cancer are known but not causes of the disease, gravely misleading women, causing enormous harm. If women knew all the facts about breast cancer many would stop having prophylactic mastectomies and other unscientific procedures.
