Los Angeles - Six weeks after revealing she has breast cancer, E! News host Giuliana Rancic says she will have a double mastectomy.

The 37-year-old made the announcement on Monday on NBC's Today show.

"It was not an easy decision but it was the best decision for me," she said.

She plans to have the surgery in the coming week and said she hopes to be recovered by New Year's Eve, when she and husband Bill Rancic are planning to be in Times Square.

Rancic said she received an "overwhelming outpouring of love, prayers and support" after announcing her breast cancer diagnosis in October.

"I want to make sure to thank everyone and give them an update for being so kind and loving and supportive," she said.

E! expressed its support for Rancic in a statement.

"Giuliana's strength continues to amaze us," the network said. "We admire her courage and are proud to stand by her side through every step on her path to full recovery."
