The E! News and Style Network host, 37, made the emotional announcement on NBC's Today show yesterday. She will undergo surgery this week and then have six weeks of radiation therapy. The cancer has been detected early, and the prognosis is good, she said. (Ladies, please go and check your self. The earlier it's detected the better your chances of survival).
"I still want this baby ... because this baby has saved my life," she said. "I truly feel God was looking out after me … If I had gotten pregnant later down the line, I could have been a lot sicker."
She also says her husband, Bill Rancic, has been "unbelievable. The best thing about Bill is, he lets me cry when I want to cry."
Coincidentally, Rancic recently filmed some on-the-street interviews bust breast cancer myth for the non-profit Bright Pink as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which marks its 25th anniversary this year.
