Giuliana Rancic shares rare photo of son Duke, 7, and thanks family for support during breast cancer battle

GIULIANA Rancic shared a rare snap of her son Duke as she reflected on the power of family support during her breast cancer battle.

The E! News reporter, 45, who was diagnosed in 2011, posted two bright and sunny images with the seven-year-old to her Instagram, on Thursday.

The interviewer, who underwent a bilateral mastectomy, posed on wooden deck steps as the sun set, with Duke – whom she shares with husband Bill.

She captioned thanking Janie and Jack for their financial commitment to her breast cancer charity, FabUWish.

Giuliana explained the clothing store would donate 25% of profits from its Think Pink collection to the charity, which my grants wishes to those going through cancer treatment.

"Family is the most important part of my life, and I’ll always remember how my family supported me throughout my #breastcancer journey," she wrote.

She concluded: "Thank you Janie and Jack!!! Your generosity will put smiles on so many deserving faces."

Giuliana is wearing a white T-shirt and pale pink jeans.

Duke is color co-ordinated in white slacks and a pink shirt.

Their son was welcomed via gestational surrogate in 2012, after multiple rounds of IVF didn't result in a pregnancy.

Speaking of her diagnosis, Giuliana told "The diagnosis was almost impossible to take in".

“Hearing [my doctor] say, ‘I’m so sorry, but you have breast cancer,’ was awful,” she told them. “I’m going, ‘How did I get here? I was perfectly healthy, I had no family history of breast cancer.'”

"It felt like the ground had been just pulled from beneath me.  And I was just falling through darkness," she said.

Rancic faced backlash, in February 2015, over her controversial comments about synthetic dreadlocks worn by Zendaya at the Oscars – remarking that the hair looked like it smelled of "patchouli and weed."
