Team Rancic Announced as Honorary Co-Chairs for Survivors Convention

One of America's Best-Loved Couples to Share Heartwarming, Motivating Stories at the National Women's Survivors Convention

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - January 21, 2014) - The Women Survivors Alliance is excited to announce that Giuliana and Bill Rancic will serve as honorary co-chairs for the Second Annual National Women's Survivors Convention. This one-of-a-kind event designed to honor and inspire cancer survivors will take place Thursday, July 31 - Saturday, August 2, 2014 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. 

Giuliana Rancic is one of the world's most credible and well-known entertainment journalists and can be seen nightly as anchor of E! News. A breast cancer survivor, Giuliana created "Fab-U-Wish," a program to grant fashion, beauty and celebrity themed wishes to women battling this disease. In addition to co-hosting the event, Giuliana will step into a familiar role along the red carpet as host of the convention's Red Carpet Live Pajama Party. See what it's like for the world's top celebrities to be on the other end of Giuliana's microphone.

"While we cannot control what life brings us, we can control how we react," says Giuliana. "This is where we find the strength and power to persevere and succeed."

Bill Rancic burst onto the national scene when he was hired by Donald Trump as the winner of the first season of NBC's breakthrough program The Apprentice. Bill is one of the most sought-after motivational speakers on the topics of entrepreneurship and business. He educates and inspires audiences by sharing the lessons he's learned throughout his business career.

"Life's experiences make us who we are. Accept this, embrace this and use this to create the world you want and the world you deserve," says Bill. "If you do this, nothing can stop you."

The couple's hit reality show, Giuliana & Bill, will continue with the season six premiere, July 16th, on Style Network. Giuliana and Bill's unique combined perspective provides audiences with a stimulating, candid, provocative and inspiring conversation from both sides of the aisle.

Founded by the Women Survivors Alliance, the National Women's Survivors Convention aims to establish a network where women affected by cancer can find their voice, improve their quality of life and embrace their new normal.

Thanks to tremendous strides in research, more of us are now beating the beast called cancer. In fact, there are over 7 million women cancer survivors in this country. But a cancer diagnosis is a life game changer. Survivors must address the long-term and life limiting effects of the illness and its treatments including physical, emotional, psychosocial, legal and financial issues. Survivorship, and the recognition of the many challenges survivors face following treatment, is the cutting-edge theme in the world of cancer. It is clear that the time has come to move survivorship to the forefront of the conversation about cancer and Giuliana and Bill exemplify that movement.

Also for 2014, participants can expect even more celebrities, cutting edge researchers, cancer-based organizations, networking opportunities, the Celebrate Survivors 5k and the opportunity for a night out downtown. Returning favorites include the Survivors Marketplace Expo, and our Glamville makeovers.

Space is limited, so reserve your spot at www.SURVIVORVILLE.org and like us on Facebook www.facebook.com/SurvivorsConvention to get the exciting announcements ahead!

The mission of the Women Survivors Alliance is to establish a network where women affected by cancer can find their voice, improve their quality of life, and embrace their new normal.
