The National Cancer Institute estimates that almost 132,000 American women and 2,400 U.S. men will develop breast cancer in 2015. With such staggering statistics, it’s unfortunate that the disease doesn’t get more attention. However, these seven celebrities are doing their part as breast cancer survivors to bring awareness and rally support for the disease…
1. Giuliana Rancic
The famous E! star discovered her early stage breast cancer diagnosis in 2011 at the young age of 36-years-old. At the time, Rancic was undergoing IVF treatments. Following her diagnosis, she underwent a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.
Rancic and son Bill still went on to have their son via a surrogate in 2012, refusing to let breast cancer obstruct their dream of parenthood. Rancic now runs Fab-U-Wish with the non-profit organization, The Pink Agenda, granting star-studded wishes to women in breast cancer and ovarian cancer treatment.
