Cancer Survivor Giuliana Rancic Shares Story of Hope

Best-selling authors and TV personalities Giuliana and Bill Rancic will be the featured speakers at Merrimack College's Relay For Life, held at Lawler Rink April 12.

Giuliana, an E! News host, is a breast cancer survivor. She and her husband Bill, who won the first season of “The Apprentice,” will share their journey through struggles with cancer and share a message of hope.

Relay for Life begins at 5 p.m., and the keynote address at 6 p.m. 

Relay For Life is an annual event held in conjunction with the American Cancer Society, in which teams register to compete in the 12-hour fundraiser by taking turns walking or running around a track. Funds raised from Relay For Life allow the American Cancer Society to work toward a world without cancer.
