Giuliana Rancic Surgery


When E! and Style Network star Giuliana Rancic revealed in October that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, people all over rallied to show their support for the star that has shared so much of her life with her fan base. The cancer was discovered when she and her Apprentice winning husband Bill Rancic were preparing for yet another round of IVF to start their family. The couple’s struggles with infertility have been chronicled on their show Giuliana and Bill.

After undergoing a double lumpectomy, a recovering Giuliana sat down with Parade Magazine for an interview. She admits, “When I went public, I thought, ‘OK, I guess a couple of people are going to talk about this,’ but I couldn’t believe it. The outpouring and the love and support was just beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I really relied on a lot of those messages I was receiving through Twitter and email and through blogs right before the surgery and the week I was recovering.”

The inspirational star continues, “I know it sounds so cliché, but I think it helped me recover quicker and it got me in better spirits. 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.”

While her surgery was rough, Giuliana gains strength from her family, friends and fans. She says, “I’m good. I’m hanging in there. I have good days and bad days, but so far so good. 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.”

Of co-worker Ryan Seacrest, Giuliana gushes, “He’s great. I describe our relationships as like a brother-sister relationship. We pick on each other, he probably picks on me much more than I pick on him, but it’s like a brother would. We have a great time. He’s been great to work with all these years. I love working with him.”

Giuliana and Bill’s relationship has been showcased on their hit show on Style Network. Fans relate to the couple as they navigate and balance relationship and work issues with equal parts humor, love and sincerity. Giuliana has no regrets about putting their lives in the public eye, stating, “We just felt like with every trial and tribulation we’ve put on this show, people have told us how much they learned from it and how it made them feel less alone. We thought that was a pretty incredible opportunity.”

I must agree that part of what makes the pair so appealing is how honest and genuine they are with their struggles. That notion isn’t lost on Giuliana who continues, “The fact that we can help people through our show is an honor. We’re happy to do it and it’s something that we continue to do. We really are like open books. It’s worth it to kind of sacrifice some of my personal life to help others.”

We here at RT are thrilled to hear that Giuliana is focused on healing quickly, and it’s amazing for her to share her story so that others who are suffering may find comfort. We continue to wish her and Bill all the health, happiness and blessings life has to offer!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF GIULIANA’S INTERVIEW? WHAT ARE YOUR WELL WISHES FOR THE COUPLE?


We are pleased to report that four days following her shattering announcement that she is battling breast cancer and scheduled to undergo surgery related to the disease, E! News host Giuliana Rancic is out of surgery and recovering!

Bill Rancic told the Today show his wife is “doing well” following the surgery and the couple views the shocking discovery as a blessing! “We’re viewing this as a gift; it was caught accidentally very, very early,” Bill said, focusing on the positives.

Giuliana, 37, underwent surgery for a double lumpectomy to remove cancerous tissue from the breasts. The surgery lasted about two hours and was without complications. “She’s a trooper. She pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out,” Bill explained. “She’s doing well at home and recovering.”

“I wish I could take some of the pain away,” he sympathized. “Watching her being wheeled into that operating room was heartbreaking for me. I’m just doing everything I can to support her and make sure that she’s comfortable.” Awww… what a wonderful husband.

Bill also emphasizes that the couple will continue their quest to become parents despite the diagnosis. Giuliana said earlier this week after discovering the cancer while prepping for a third round of IVF: “That baby will have saved my life. There’s some master plan. Now I know that [God] was looking out for me.”

And following Giuliana’s announcement earlier this week, a number of reality stars tweeted their support. Below are some of those tweets -

Bethenny Frankel“What you’re going through is all that matters @GiulianaRancic @billrancic It puts everything in perspective. Love&prayers are with you”

PRAYERS AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS FOR THE RANCICS – LEAVE YOURS BELOW!

Some sad news to report today as E! host Giuliana Rancic revealed this morning that she has breast cancer.

The 37-year-old star of Style network’s Giuliana & Bill shared the shocking news during an appearance on The Today Show.

“I have early stage breast cancer,” revealed Giuliana, adding that she actually discovered the tumor back in August, as she was prepping for her third attempt to get pregnant through in vitro fertilization.

“Through my attempt to get pregnant through IVF, we sadly found out that I have early stages of breast cancer,” she said. “It’s been a shock.”

A shock indeed as Giuliana wasn’t even planning to have her first mammogram until she was 40. Her IVF doctor was the one who insisted she have one now. Upon hearing the cancer results days later, Giuliana revealed she was “sobbing” and felt like “the world just crashed around me.”

Giuliana however stated the prognosis is good as the cancer was discovered early. She is set to undergo surgery this week, followed by six and a half weeks of radiation therapy.

Giuliana also shared her positive outlook on life as she revealed she is NOT giving her up dreams of having a baby. Her first IVF attempt ended in a miscarriage and the second one didn’t work.

“I still want this baby because this baby would have saved my life,” said Giuliana. “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 adds that her husband Bill Rancic, 40, has been her rock through this ordeal. “Bill is unbelievable,” she gushed. “He lets me cry when I want to cry, he doesn’t say, ‘Hey, look at that person who’s worse off than you are.’ He just lets me feel what I’m feeling.” Best wishes to Giuliana for a full recovery.
