Celebrity breast cancer survivors bring increased awareness to the illness and effectively encourage women across America to pursue early screening.
TV personality Guiliana Rancic recently revealed that she is battling breast cancer, which was discovered when she was undergoing fertility treatment. “Now I truly believe God was looking out for me,” she told Ann Curry on the “Today” show. “Had I gotten pregnant, a few years down the line I could have gotten sicker. So right now I’m okay. So the baby saved my life.”Frazer Harrison/GETTY IMAGES
