Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill chatted with The Today Show's Matt Lauer yesterday, and the couple opened up about her struggle with breast cancer and her recent double mastectomy.
"It was definitely hard," Giuliana told Matt. "I knew this was going to be a tough surgery. I in no way want to minimize it. Yes, I'm two and a half weeks out, my gosh. Up until a week and a half ago, it was hell. It was horrible." However, Giuliana has already returned to work at E!, and she hopes that sharing her story will help educate women and raise awareness for the disease.
"She wanted to turn the negative into a positive," Bill explained. "I think the response - the number of people who've said, 'I went and got my first mammogram,' or 'My wife got her first mammogram' [is] worth it. If you can save one life through this process, you're turning this negative into an incredible positive."
Good for her!
