During a visit to Today this morning, E!’s Giuliana Rancic (E! News, The Fashion Police) revealed to host Ann Curry that she is currently battling breast cancer. Rancic, who has publicly chronicled her struggles with infertility with her husband Bill Rancic on their reality show Giuliana & Bill, told Curry, “Through my attempt to get pregnant for the third time through IVF, we sadly found out that I have early stages of breast cancer… It’s been a shock.”

The 37-year-old went on to talk about how her doctor recommended she get a mammogram, something she thought she wouldn’t have to do until she was 40. (“I went kicking and screaming to get a mammogram, to be honest.”) A tearful and shaky Rancic recalled how she felt when she found out the news that she had cancer (“That was the hardest day”) and urged female viewers to put themselves and their health on their “to-do list.” Watch the entire interview below, in which the E! host talks about the support she’s had from her husband and why she’s “not going to give up” on having a child.
