This morning on the Today show, Rancic shared her diagnosis, telling Ann Curry: “I have early stage breast cancer.” The TV hostess, only 37, said that her doctor required her to get a mammogram before trying IVF again. “I wasn’t prepared to get a mammogram until i was 40 years old,” she admitted. “I never in my wildest dreams expected anything to be wrong.”
Luckily, the cancer was detected very early, and Giuliana’s prognosis is excellent. “I will be okay, because I found it early. I’m doing surgery this coming week, and then I go to radiation for six and a half weeks,” she said.
The star says after her treatment, she and Bill will resume baby plans, and she urges all her female fans to take their health seriously. “I think a lot of us think we’re invincible,” she said. “We have to start putting ourselves on the to do list.”
Get well soon, Giuliana!
