E! Red Carpet Host Battling Breast Cancer

Giuliana Rancic announced Monday that she’s battling breast cancer.

Doctors for the E! news and red carpet host discovered the cancer after Rancic attempted to get pregnant through in vitro fertilization. Rancic’s pregnancy attempts were featured on her Style Network reality show, Giuliana & Bill.

“Through my attempt to get pregnant for the third time, we sadly found out that I have early stages of breast cancer,”Rancic told NBC’s Today. “It’s been a shock. A lot of people have been asking, we saw that you went and got IVF, are you pregnant? But sadly, we’ve had to put that off.”

The 36-year-old will undergo surgery this week followed by six weeks of radiation. Her prognosis is good since the cancer was discovered early.

Rancic’s Today interview is after the jump and here’s to a speedy recovery.
