Giuliana Rancic has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.
The TV star bravely took to Instagram on Sunday, Dec. 18 to share that she has been cancer-free for five years — and we couldn't be more thrilled to hear this exciting health update!
"'Everything will be OK in the end. If it's not OK, it's not the end.' Ever since I was diagnosed with breast cancer, this quote has been my mantra. These words have been my anthem, my inspiration, my comfort, and my prayer," the 42-year-old powerfully wrote on the social media platform.
"They gave me hope that the emotional and physical struggles that had suddenly consumed my life were NOT my life forever. That this was temporary, and I would pass through this storm and feel the sun on the other side. That I would one day feel like "me’ again and be OK," Giuliana continued.
"This week, these words are especially meaningful as I celebrate an important milestone," she added. "The one I have prayed for every night for one thousand, eight hundred and twenty seven nights: Five years cancer-free."
The mom-of-one was previously diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2011 at age 36. In a recent interview with Closer Weekly, Giuliana shared special words of encouragement for women who are currently going through what she once did. "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 said.
