Giuliana Rancic is not allowing her breast cancer battle to completely consume her life as the 37 year old E! News contributor returned to work this past Tuesday after recently undergoing a double mastectomy.
A double mastectomy is a very invasive procedure that often requires many months of recovery; and even then, the emotional toll can often be more painful and grueling than the physical. However, Rancic continues to defy the odds by returning to her coveted position at E! News exactly two weeks after undergoing her surgery.
Giuliana voiced her triumphant return on E!’s website by stating;
“Thankfully, I’ve been feeling better every single day since surgery and this weekend my doctors gave me the green light to get back to work.”
As a show of excitement and appreciation to her fans and supporters, Rancic also tweeted;
“Back at work today since surgery. Excited to be on set of @ENews. I’ve missed my 2nd family (co-workersnd you guys!!!) #thankful.”
She later expressed that although her return was occasionally painful, the resilient host pushed past her discomfort with the love and support of her co-workers.
“Even though I moved a tad slower than usual today, everyone welcomed me back with open arms and it was a wonderful homecoming,”
Rancic has frequently credited the support of her husband Bill Rancic for quote taking “such wonderful care” of her. And although her cancer was a devastating discovery, she turned the news towards a positive direction by encouraging woman like her that they too can overcome the disease.
“The fact that I can be a voice for women and tell them they do have options… is great,” she told US Weekly 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.”
Is Steven Tyler Engaged?
Aerosmith front man and American Idol judge Steven Tyler, 63, may be engaged to his girlfriend Erin Brady. The rumor began when Brady, 38, was spotted with a huge diamond ring on her engagement finger during the couples vacation in Maui during their Christmas vacation.
Tyler who will return to American Idol for it’s upcoming season has said a word on the divorce, though its reported some members of his family are less than thrilled. A source stated that Erin is mean to the family. Tyler was previously married to Cyrinda Foxe, an ex-Warhol model, from 1978 to 1987, Teresa Barrick, a clothing designer from 1988 to 2006. The third time may just be the charm. Congrats to Steven and Erin!
