London: American celebrity Giuliana Rancic has praised singer Kelly Osbourne for helping her during breast cancer surgery.

Giuliana explained that Osbourne, 27, has sent words of inspiration through micro-blogging site Twitter and flowers as she prepared to undergo a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery earlier this month following her diagnosis with breast cancer.

"Kelly (Osbourne) was so incredibly supportive through all of this. I remember from the beginning she kept tweeting all of these messages of love and inspiration: `You`re an inspiration. I love you. Stay Strong. Good luck on your surgery`," contactmusic.com quoted Rancic as saying.

"All my surgeries, everything she`s always sent me emails and tweeted, every single time I`d got through anything. She sent me this gorgeous orchid. It`s sitting in my kitchen right now on the windowsill...," she added.
