Giuliana Rancic marks 5 years being cancer-free
Giuliana Rancic has celebrated her fifth year being cancer-free.
The 42-year-old TV presenter has shared a touching message to mark the milestone after overcoming breast cancer, in which the star admitted she has prayed "every night" for such a day to come.
Captioning a picture of herself on a beach with her arms spread out, the ‘Fashion Police’ star wrote: ""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. 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.
This week, these words are especially meaningful as I celebrate an important milestone – the one I have prayed for every night for one thousand, eight hundred and twenty-seven nights:
Five years cancer-free. (sic)"
Despite hitting the milestone, Giuliana insists she is still "praying" for those who are affected by the disease.
She added: "Now that I’ve reached this critical milestone, the odds of the breast cancer coming back are not gone but exponentially lower. Breast cancer is more of my history, less of my present, but that doesn’t mean I am leaving this battlefield.
Through my journey, I have met those who, it breaks my heart to say, did not reach this milestone. This past year alone, more than 40,000 people died of breast cancer, while another 300,000 received the devastating diagnosis and began their own journeys through the storm.
And I pray for them all. (sic)"
