Giuliana Rancic may be fighting breast cancer. But she's certainly not fighting it alone.

In the hours since the E! News anchor bravely took to the Today show to reveal that she has been diagnosed in the early stages of the disease, an outpouring of celebrity support has flooded through Twitter, with cohost Ryan Seacrest, Lea Michele, Denise Richards, LeAnn Rimes, Rancic's Fashion Police cohort Kelly Osbourne and more sending words of support, encouragement and take-no-prisoners battle cries her way.

And their well wishes have not gone unnoticed.

"Thank you for all ur love & support today," Giuliana's husband Bill Rancic tweeted earlier today. "G is reading all your messages. She will win this fight, I PROMISE, &  be back better than ever!"

With a support system like that in place, she hardly needs any more, but she's getting it anyway. Here's a sampling of the Twitter love that's been coming Giuliana's way:

Ryan Seacrest: "Take a second to send good wishes to @GiulianaRancic, she's had a tough couple days. We'll all be w/u through surgery jules! Love u."

The E! family also offered up support to its longtime talent earlier today: "On behalf of her E! family, we are sending our love and support to Giuliana and applaud her for sharing her recent breast cancer diagnosis in the hope that it will encourage women everywhere to take necessary and preventative measures.

"Giuliana has chosen to talk about her breast cancer on E! News tonight prior to her lumpectomy later this week. We are grateful that thanks to early detection, Giuliana is expected to have a swift and complete recovery."

Likewise, Giuliana's Style family, which airs her reality show Giuliana & Bill, also offered up public well-wishes to the star:

"We are sending our thoughts, love and support to Giuliana, Bill and their families during this difficult time," the network said. "Giuliana has always shown great strength and courage in sharing her challenges with health issues facing so many women. We are hopeful that with the early detection she will have a complete recovery and that her personal journey will continue to be an inspiration and education for women everywhere."
