In a stunning announcement, E! host and reality star Giuliana Rancic announced on Today that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

In an interview with Ann Curry, Rancic said that during a recent round of talks to undergo a third round of IVF to get pregnant, a doctor told her that she needed to get a mammogram before he proceeded any further. Rancic said that she hadn't thought about doing so until she was at least 4o (she's currently 36), but that to move forward with the baby plan she would get the test. 

"Through my attempt to get pregnant ... we sadly found out that I have early stages of breast cancer. It's been a shock," Rancic said, choking back tears and acknowledging that many fans would think her big announcement would be a pregnancy.

"Don't feel sorry for me, just instead call your doctor tomorrow and make an appointment. I will be OK because I found it early," Rancic said to her female fans and anyone else watching her story.

She said that if anything, the cancer news was a bit of a blessing and a sign from above as to why she hasn't been able to get pregnant.

"I'm not going to give up, and the reasoning is that this baby saved my life .... Now I truly believe that God was looking out for me. Even when I would ask him ... 'Why can't you given me a baby,' now I know he was actually looking out for me," she said, adding that pregnancy can sometimes speed up the cancer process.

She will have surgery this week and undergo radiation for six-plus weeks to combat the cancer.

Just last week, Celebuzz chatted with Giuliana and husband Bill Rancic, who told us their quest for a baby was ongoing.

“Ultimately, our doctors say that they can get us pregnant. We’re going to one of the most successful IVF doctors in the world, and we believe in him. We’ll see what happens,” Bill told us, adding that adoption rumors aren’t true. “Adoption is still an option down the road, but right now, we’re going through IVF, and we believe we’re going to have a really good outcome. We have high hopes this time around.”

    I heard about your issues, with cancer. My relatives went thru struggles with cancer, unfortuntly the results where not in their favor, don't get scared for what I said, one advise I want you to take in conideration. Have faith to my father in Jesus-Christ, and I'm in tears just because, I thank that I'm alive with my 3 kids & +1. And I been thru Hell & Back seen him and you know what, satan don't want too see me, he ain't got no power over me, FAITH, God Bless & tell us your story when your cancer is gone in the name of GOD..........

    She might ask her Dr. about the "SAVI" or "CONTURA" treatements. Rather than 6 weeks of external treatments, a woman can do 5 days (twice a day) of internal treatments. I was diagnosed with early stages of breast cancer and I am so happy with the treatment option of the internal radiation.

    That's so sad , she should stop takin those hormones , they say they can cause cancer .. a surrogate would be a better choice ..

    GIULIANA AND BILL - YOUR SHOW IS MY VERY FAVOURITE SHOW OF ALL: YOU ARE BOTH VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE EACH OTHER AND TO HAVE SUCH A CLOSE BOND. YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS AND GOD IS WITH YOU, NO MATTER WHAT. GOD DOES NOT GIVE US MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE. MAY HE SHELTER YOU IN THE SHADOW OF HIS WINGS.

    This poor girl has been through so much. Praying that she and her family get through this and that some day they can have a child. It's sad so many women get pregnant and don't want their kids, but she wants one so badly and can't.

    I don't like Guiliana much, I actually find her pretty annoying on her reality show, but I feel really bad for her. It's tough enough trying to get pregnant through IVF, but being diagnosed with cancer on top of that must be pretty hard news to take. Good luck to her!
