Giuliana Rancic is one of my biggest idols. I seriously love this woman, and my heart sunk when I heard the news. The big announcement we’d all been expecting was that she and Bill were pregnant, but instead she told Anne Curry and millions of us that she has breast cancer:
Giuliana didn’t even want to have the mammogram; she didn’t see why she would need to. There is no history of breast cancer in her family, and at 36, she thought the screening was premature. Her doctor insisted, and would not prepare her for IVF until she agreed to the screening, and may have just saved her life.
