Just six weeks after revealing  her diagnosis of breast cancer, TV presenter  Giuliana Rancic has announced on todays NBC today show in the US that she is to undergo major surgery, having a double Mastectomy.

The surgery could be as early as next week.  “It was not an easy decision, but it was the best decision for me”  She said

Guiliana and her husband Bill Rancic, were given the tragic news of her breast cancer diagnosis, after a routine mammogram, requested by her OBGYN doctor. Guiliana and Bill had been undergoing IVF treatment in an attempt to get pregnant, after they hit  few problems conceiving naturally, and after 2 failed attempts at the fertility treatment, they sought the help of  new doctor, who refused to treat the TV presenter untill she had the mammogram scan, pointing out that the strong drugs involved in IVF process, can quickly excel cancer cells.  He is one of very few doctors who demand, the test before treating women for fertility.

Rancic, has said before in interview, that she will be forever thankful to her doctor, as a 37-year-old woman, she is well under the age considered high risk for breast cancer, and it is highly likely her condition would have been unknown, for a long time to come.

E! News have released a statement, expressing their continued support to Guiliana;

“Guiliana’s strength continues to amaze us” the Network said, “We admire her courage and are proud to stand by her side through every step of her path to full recovery”.
