It was just this past Monday that Giuliana Rancic, star of Giuliana and Bill, announced on the Today show that she has breast cancer. Giuliana and her husband, Bill Rancic, were on a journey to conceive a baby through IVF when they learned Giuliana had breast cancer. Keep reading for an update on Giuliana’s surgery.
It was only days ago when Giuliana bravely shared she is battling breast cancer. All her fans, friends and family have shown an outpouring of support for this E! news reporter. However, her “rock” has been her hubby, Bill Rancic, in this unexpected journey. He shared, “I wish I could take some of the pain away. I’m just doing everything I can to support her and make sure she is comfortable.” Bill made a quick appearance on the Today show to update Ann Curry on how Giuliana’s double lumpectomy went.
Bill shared with Ann that it was definitely a long day. After some long MRIs and another mammogram Giuliana went into surgery. Bill shared, “She’s a trooper. She pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out. She’s doing well at home and recovering.” Bill also mentioned the couple hopes to receive some good news about the lymph nodes that were removed for precautionary measures.
The couple is happy that Giuliani’s fertility doctor insisted she get a mammogram before going through another round of IVF, because they found the cancer early. Early detection is the key to surviving breast cancer, which is why Giuliana wanted to share her story in hopes to inspire women to get their mammograms.
As for a baby, the couple will continue to try to conceive once Giuliana beats this cancer. After her surgery Giuliana will have six and half weeks of radiation therapy to complete her cancer treatment.
We wish Giuliana the best and thank her for sharing her story and her journey with us.
