E! News anchor and Fashion Police host, and breast cancer survivor, Giuliana Rancic, is once again partnering with national non-profit Bright Pink to launch Fab-U-Wish, an exciting new philanthropic initiative that provides young women battling breast and ovarian cancer with the opportunity to spend a day feeling “fabulous” by living out one of their wildest wishes or dreams. E! will serve as the official media partner of Fab-U-Wish..
In 2011, Giuliana went through a public battle with an early stage breast cancer diagnosis, double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. During that challenging time, she relied heavily on the love and support of her husband of 5 years, Bill Rancic, family, close friends, colleagues, fans around the world, and Bright Pink Founder, Lindsay Avner. However, it was the days of having her hair and make-up done at E!, putting on a gorgeous designer gown to interview celebrities on the red carpet, or receiving the full Hollywood treatment that helped her feel more like a princess and less like a patient. She realized that her own special form of “fab therapy” helped take her mind off her breast cancer battle and remain optimistic, rather than continuously focusing on her illness. “I’m grateful to be where I am today – a new mother, feeling strong and healthy and in a position to help other women now going through what I did,” said Giuliana Rancic. “Along with my friend Lindsay Avner and the team at Bright Pink, I hope to pay it forward and become a “fairy godmother” to other women by establishing Fab-U-Wish. I sure know firsthand that a little bit of fabulous can go a long way to keep you feeling bright during some of the darkest days.”
Applying for a Fab-U-Wish is simple. Women 45 and under currently undergoing treatment for breast and ovarian cancer can submit a 150-word essay or a two-minute video explaining their wish and how this one-of-a-kind indulgence would help bring some brightness to them during treatment. Giuliana and Bright Pink will work together to review applications and select the most inspiring, creative, awesome, fabulous, and bright wishes to be granted each year, thanks to generous supporters and brands To learn more about Fab-U-Wish and the official application details, or to submit your wish, please visit FabUWish.org.
Congrats to Giuliana and Lindsay for all you do for so many!
