E!News, Giuliana Rancic announced an amazing new charity called Fab-U-Wish™. As a breast cancer survivor, Rancic realized that getting dolled up for work while undergoing treatment was a special kind of therapy that made her feel good about herself.
Rancic, along with Bright Pink, wants to share that same brightness with other young breast and
ovarian cancer survivors, and aims to play
fairy godmother to women in need of a little refuge. (Bright Pink is the only national non-profit organization that focuses on the
prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young
women while still providing support for high-risk individuals.)
Fab-U-Wish wants to make dreams come true for women 45 and younger undergoing treatment for ovarian or breast cancer. There is an opportunity to nominate someone you know, or if you are undergoing treatment yourself, you can submit yourself directly on the website.
Fab-U-Wish is teaming up with Rancic's E! Network to really try and make a little bit of fabulous go a long way. As Rancic mentioned, a red carpet experience or a lunch with Bradley Cooper are all in the realm of possibility. Indulgent? Perhaps. But as she points out, indulging in the things that made her look and feel good about
herself, helped her remain her outgoing, optimistic, and confident
self, and not solely focused on her breast cancer.
Kudos to Giuliana Rancic for using her celebrity status to spread awareness to young women about breast and ovarian cancers and for helping those that are going through it.
