E! correspondent Giuliana Rancic announced earlier this week that she has breast cancer, and would be undergoing a double mastectomy. Back in October she revealed she was suffering from breast cancer, but just this week she announced she’d be having the double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.
She’s on this week’s cover of People, and in the magazine she opens up about her struggles.
Giuliana Rancic knows sheâ€™ll have scars from her upcoming double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. And she plans to embrace them.
â€œI think scars tell such an incredible story,â€ the E! News anchor, 37, tells PEOPLE in this weekâ€™s cover story. â€œIâ€™ll always look at them and think, â€˜Wow, I made it through that.â€™ â€
Still, she admits that there are moments as she lays in bed next to her husband Bill, 40, when impact of her shocking cancer diagnosis hits her.
â€œUsually itâ€™s 2 in the morning, and Iâ€™ll turn around from Bill so I donâ€™t wake him up, and I just cry,â€ she says. â€œI sob and think, â€˜How did this happen?â€™ â€
Mostly, though, the â€œtough Italian woman,â€ as Bill calls his wife of four years, is determined to eradicate the disease that has turned her world upside down since being diagnosed three months ago.
â€œMy breasts have never defined me â€“ and now they never will,â€ says Giuliana, whose surgery is scheduled for Dec. 13.
Hoping she makes a quick recovery! Cancer bites. 🙁
