Giuliana Rancic, of Giuliana & Bill, revealed back in October that she wasbattling breast cancer, and the E! correspondent recently revealed that even having surgery, she is planning on having a double mastectomy. Read on for more about this breaking story!
Giuliana Rancic revealed back in October that she was diagnosed with breast cancer, during a routine IVF visit, and underwent surgery to remove the cancer. Her husband, Bill Rancic posted a positive update after her surgery, but it appears that the lumpectomies failed to completely remove the cancer. Giuliana Rancic announced this morning that because of this, she is planning on having a double mastectomy. The couple, who appeared on NBC’s today show, said that they could have gone for another lumpectomy with radiation, but they wanted to take the more extreme route to ensure the cancer was gone (after a mastectomy, Giuliana has a one percent chance of the cancer returning).
Giuliana Rancic said: “For me, it was important to get the cancer out. That’s what I wanted to do, just get it out.” And while medication after a lumpectomy and radiation would have definitely hindered the couple’s baby making process for a few years, Giuliana says that is not the primary reason they opted out of it, as she added: “At the end, to be honest, all it came down to was just choosing to live, and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life.”
The decision to have a double mastectomy was not an easy one for Giuliana, but she shared how much the support from her husband, Bill Rancic helped her make the decision. Giuliana gushed that Bill doesn’t care what she looks like, he just wants her around with him for the next 50 years, which made her decision slightly easier, and she added: “I couldn’t be more at peace with the decision. But it’s hard, and I still break down some nights … But I’m okay.”
Our thoughts and prayers here at Reality TV Magazine go out to Giuliana Rancic during this trying time in her life. Giuliana, we hope that you realize what a true inspiration you are to women everywhere, and we wish you nothing but the best!
