Giuliana Rancic Recovering – Giuliana Rancic is doing well and recovering from her double lumpectomy. The E! News host is certainly on the mend, but she’s more shocked by the amount of public support received following her recent breast cancer diagnosis. The E! news anchor and reality star, who underwent a double lumpectomy last month, claimed that the well-wishes from her family, friends and fans have helped her to bounce back strong despite the illness.
“When I went public, I thought, ‘Okay, I guess a couple of people are going to talk about this’, but I couldn’t believe it. The outpouring and the love and support was just beyond anything I could have ever imagined,” Rancic explained in a new interview with Parade.
“I really relied on a lot of those messages I was receiving through Twitter and email and through blogs right before the surgery and the week I was recovering. I know it sounds so cliche, but I think it helped me recover quicker and it got me in better spirits. The word I kept seeing over and over again was ‘strong’. ‘Be strong, you’re strong’.
“That word has never meant so much to me as it has this past month. I owe that all to the people behind me.”
Rancic also said that she is “optimistic” on her chances of beating the cancer and is trying to stay positive despite having some bad days.
“I’m good. I’m hanging in there. I have good days and bad days, but so far so good. I’m very optimistic and I’m just happy to have caught it early,” she revealed. “I think that’s really the most important thing.
“Early detection means so much. I want women to make sure they’re taking care of their health and being proactive.”
Giuliana previously confessed that she was a “nervous wreck” before revealing her diagnosis on TV.
