Hollywood FAQs: Celebrity news personality Giuliana Rancic has decided to undergo a double mastectomy as well as immediate restitution barely weeks after announcing that she is suffering from breast cancer. But as always, Rancic has turned her personal struggle in to a positive message. On December 5, 2011 the host said that she has three big reasons for going public.
Rancic started off by saying that she would like to take away the stigma and added that the word ‘Mastectomy’ seemed very scary at first. The host added that she has done research on the treatment and is looking at the advancement, the surgery has come a long way from 20 yeas back and that that results of the surgery can be incredible. The surgery can not only save life, but can also help the person feel healthier with a positive self image.
The second thing that host shared was that she wanted to encourage everyone to be proactive with their health and also get checked out. The third most personal reason Rancic talked about was when she went public earlier about her breast cancer diagnosis – the overwhelming response, prayers and support helped her to heal faster. Rancic added that she wanted to thank everyone give an update for being so kind, supporting and loving. She added that she took the tough decision only after careful deliberation and consultation with some handpicked experts.
The team of experts included some top doctors, women who are mastectomies, radiologists and also women who went for alternative treatment like lumpectomies, radiation and anti-estrogen therapies. The news host shared that it wasn’t an easy decision but was the best decision for her. Rancic was accompanied by her husband Bill Rancic, who has always been a strong support for his wife.
