Giuliana Rancic Finds out she has Breast Cancer During her IVF Treatmen
This definitely is shocking news.
We know all too well of Bill and Giuliana Rancic’s plight to have a baby. They have been going through IVF treatment after IVF treatment. During their latest in-vitro round, Giuliana discovered that she had a cancerous tumor in her breast!
She made the announcement live on The Today Show.
‘Through my attempt to get pregnant through IVF, we sadly found out that I have early stages of breast cancer. It’s been a shock.’
During her third round of IVF the doctor asked her to have a mammogram. Giuliana thought the notion was foolish because she believed that she was too young and there is no history of breast cancer in her family. The doctor, who knew way more than the patient – insisted, because the IVF procedure would accelerate any cancerous growths if they were to exist. In Giuliana’s words,
‘I wasn’t prepared to get a mammogram until I was 40 years old, like I’d been told. I never in my wildest dreams expected anything to be wrong. It was just a kick in the stomach.’
‘I went into the hospital in L.A., when they came in to tell me, they said it pretty quickly, they just said, “I’m sorry, you have breast cancer.”
‘It’s what you expect, but so much more, it was like, incredible instant sobbing and the world just crashed down around me. I couldn’t believe it – 36 years old, no family history? I couldn’t believe it.’
Giuliana will undergo lumpectomy surgery and then have six weeks of post-surgery radiation therapy.
In regards to having the baby. Bill and Giuliana are hopeful that they can continue their quest. Giuliana feels that her yet to be born baby actually saved her life…..and I agree.
‘I still want this baby … because this baby has saved my life. I truly feel God was looking out after me… If I had gotten pregnant later down the line, I could have been a lot sicker.’
Of course her husband Bill has been by her side because that’s the type of guy he is. …really. Bill tweeted thanks to all the fans that sent their wishes
‘Thank you for all ur love & support today. G is reading all your messages. She will win this fight, I PROMISE, & be back better than ever!’
The world works in mysterious ways. Imagine if they would have gotten pregnant on the first try…..she wouldn’t have gotten a mammogram until age 40. She would have only detected the cancer when she felt a lump, and by then it would or could be too late.
As I say..everything happens for a reason. Love life.
