Since successfully beating breast cancer in 2011, Giuliana Rancic has been using her platform as an E! host and reality TV star to help raise awareness – and funds – in an effort to find a cure for the illness.
Now working on a new initiative, Save Lids to Save Lives, Giuliana tells Life & Style about why she is more excited than ever to make a difference.
“Going through something like breast cancer is traumatizing and there’s nothing fun about it, but once you recover and you feel strong and confident enough to share your story, it’s worth it,” Giuliana tells the mag. “It really is a privilege to be able to share my story and be able to help people and to use this platform that I have to help people and it really does make it better.”
Giuliana says that she never regrets making her battle with breast cancer public knowledge. In fact, opening up to the world has been incredibly rewarding for the mother-of-one.
“Not many days go by where someone doesn’t at least tweet me or come up to me on the street or on an airplane and say, ‘Wow, I saw your story and because of you I got a mammogram and I’m doing great and everything was fine, but I was so nervous about getting one and I’m so glad I did it,’” says the TV personality. “By sharing my story, I essentially may have saved someone’s life. And there’s nothing more rewarding than that.”
