EXCLUSIVE: Giuliana Rancic Gets Candid About Her Breast Cancer Battle During Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Giuliana Rancic is bravely opening up about her experience with breast cancer.

"I was diagnosed at 36-years-old. No family history of breast cancer. It was the most shocking moment of my life," she revealed to Closer Weekly in an exclusive new interview.

This October, the stunning TV star is stressing the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month more than ever. "Early detection is [very important]. Breast cancer, if caught early, has a 98 percent survival rate," she shared. "It's so important whether you're 40 or above to get a mammogram or if you're younger do the yearly doctor visit. Then on your own, whether you're in the shower or in bed, once a month or whenever you think about it, just feel around."

Giuliana, 42, also shared special words of encouragement for women who are currently battling breast cancer. "My best advice to them is what helped me. I remember the words 'this too shall pass.' And it does pass. Just knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel is what we need to get us through the day," she continued.
