Giuliana Rancic Dealt Another Harsh Health Blow

Healthy Living 32

giuliana rancicWhen I first saw Giuliana Rancic on E! a few years back, all I could think was, "Oh, look, it's another Hollywood twig who probably subsists on Diet Coke and celery sticks!" But as she's gone from E! News host to reality show star, she's become more and more vocal about her health. It seems like her weight struggles were only the tip of the iceberg. She's been extremely open about dealing with infertility. And now ... Rancic has announced that she's battling breast cancer. Wow, as if the star didn't already have her plate full of health issues!

Sure, over the course of our lives, we all have our own crosses to bear, be that broken bones, disease, genetic issues, hormonal problems, weight, chronic illnesses, etc. But it seems rare that it's one thing on top of the next like what Giuliana's got going on! Seriously, how much can one woman take??

She said today that she's undergoing surgery this week, then six weeks of radiation treatments. After that, she plans to get back on the baby-making train ASAP. I gotta say ... good for her! Seems like she's staying really positive about everything, and that's pretty much all you can do when you're dealt a hand like this. I'm a strong believer in a positive attitude really making a difference in the healing process, too.

But if she does struggle to keep her head up, and does feel like giving up at some point, who could blame her? That would be totally normal. The woman's got A LOT going on now, and it's got to be stressful, to say the least.

The only silver lining here: Maybe it did all happen for a reason; Giuliana even said she felt like God was looking out after her. Perhaps this diagnosis will actually offer her an opportunity here -- to better understand and address any lifestyle and/or possible genetic issues that have contributed to her weight, infertility, and cancer. It will only empower her more to beat the disease, pre-empt any more troubles down the road, and in turn, be more vital than ever, even more prepared to handle a pregnancy and be a mother. She seems to have what it takes to turn her wellness around. She's certainly got tons of fans rooting for her to!

What do you think about Giuliana's many health battles?

I almost cried when I saw her announce it on the TODAY show this morning and I barely know anything about the woman, except that she's had infertility struggles. But it did make me think about how the big picture can all fit together. Maybe she wasn't meant to get pregnant yet so that she could kick this thing in the butt first. I hope there's still a happy ending involved for her. 


Rooting for ya, Giuliana!

I just feel awful for the poor girl. I couldnt imagine having to drift from one health issue to the next. I hope that they are able to get a hold of her breast cancer and kick it to the curb.
