Giuliana Rancic inspired hundreds of women with her fight against breast cancer, but she may have even save a few lives along the way too.

Friend and Dancing With the Stars host Brooke Burke recently opened up about getting her mammogram after hearing about Rancic’s diagnosis. In the latest issue of Prevention, the 40-year-old revealed she even thanked the E! News presenter after her appointment, saying:

“As soon as I found out my friend Giuliana Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer, I booked my mammogram. I called her from the doctor’s office and said, ‘Thank you for provoking me to have this done.'”

“When I was finished, I said to the nurse, ‘What’s the big deal? There’s so much negative talk about the mammogram,'” she added. “The biggest thing was scheduling my day to get there. The actual appointment was a piece of cake.”

Rancic, 37, who underwent a double mastectomy in December, is now expecting her first child with husband Bill Rancic through a surrogate.
