Like so many women in her position, E! News host Giuliana Rancic can at least take comfort in the overwhelming support of her family, friends and colleagues.
News that Giuliana has breast cancer, revealed by Rancic herself on Today, has triggered an outpouring of support from fans - both famous and regular people.
Most significant of all is husband Bill Rancic, who Tweeted:
"Thank you for all your love and support today. G is reading all your messages. She will win this fight, I PROMISE, and be back better than ever."
E! released a statement of "love and support" to Giuliana and applauded her "for sharing her recent breast cancer diagnosis in the hope that it will encourage women everywhere to take necessary and preventative measures."
"Giuliana has chosen to talk about her breast cancer on E! News prior to her lumpectomy later this week," the statement said. "We are very grateful that thanks to early detection Giuliana is expected to have a swift and complete recovery."
