Six weeks after revealing she has breast cancer, E! News host Giuliana Rancic (RAN'sik) says she will have a double mastectomy.
The 37-year-old made the announcement Monday on NBC's "Today" show.
Rancic says it was not an easy decision but was the best one for her.
She plans to have the surgery next week and says she hopes to be recovered by New Year's Eve, when she and husband Bill Rancic are planning to be in Times Square.
