Giuliana Rancic already back to work after two weeks
Dec 29, 2011
E! host Giuliana Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple months ago, and she returned to work just two weeks after undergoing two surgeries, according to Us Weekly.
Rancic underwent a four-hour double mastectomy on December 13, after which her doctors explained that there is less than a one percent chance that the cancer will return.
"The fact that I can be a voice for women and tell them they do have options... is great," she told the news source earlier this month of her very public ordeal with cancer. "I have gotten so many 'Thank you's.' It's humbling... I've never felt I wanted to help people as much as I do now."
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point throughout their lifetime. Not only is it the second most common form of cancer among women behind skin cancer, but it is the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women, following only lung cancer.
