Giuliana Rancic, who just went through a successful double mastectomy, has just revealed that she almost kept it all a secret — even from her closest of friends.
Here's what she said:
“There was definitely a period of time when we thought, we’ll probably keep this a secret…forever. And then, I don’t know, it’s just not my personality. I kept thinking to myself, ‘Gosh, I wish I could tell my friends what I’m going through or girls at work, just because I wanted to tell them to get checked and tell them, ‘Hey guys, if this can happen to me, then it could happen to you!’ I knew I would never be able to keep this a secret because I was armed with this incredible knowledge that if you can just find breast cancer early enough you can be totally fine and healed.”
We're SO glad she's been open and honest about everything, however, because not only do we think that the support she's gotten helps… but others who hear about her journey could also be helped in return. Maybe it would inspire others to go into their own treatment with the right kind of attitude!
Either way, we're also very happy to hear the surgery has gone well, and that she's bouncing back extremely fast!
