Maria Menounos Shares an Emotional Photo With Her Mum After Brain Tumour Diagnosis

Maria Menounos is slowly but surely recovering after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumour earlier this June. The former E! News anchor, who recently announced her departure from the show to focus on her health, gave a bittersweet update on her recovery process on Monday. While she confirmed that she doesn't need any further treatments, she asked for prayers for her mum, Litsa Menounos, who is currently battling stage 4 brain cancer. She even posted a heartwarming selfie of the two of them on Instagram. Read her full post below.

"First I wanna say thank you all for the well wishes, prayers and support. It's been a crazy time here in our home. I want you all to know that I'm ok! Seriously I'm recovering well and should be as good as new very very soon! Luckily I don't need any further treatments but I can't say the same about my mum. So please keep her in your prayers. I also want to thank @people for allowing me to share my story. @juliejordanc & @mrjesscagle THANK YOU' Next — I need to thank everyone at @cedarssinai everyone there has been amazing. Most people want to rush out of the hospital to get home I kept saying I've never been treated kinder. I cried like a baby saying goodbye to the amazing nurses who took such good care of me. God bless nurses! I of course need to thank dr black and dr Chu for performing an amazing surgery and giving me the best bday gift ever — my health. And lastly, god has blessed me in so many ways but this too was a blessing. I got to hear what I have meant to my friends and family-it's been quite moving for me. I want thank all of my incredible friends, family and even strangers who have shown me and my family such kindness. @alyssawallerce Thank you for being with me every step of the way. I couldn't have done it without you. @iamjoegear You too! And to @undergaro the best nurse in the world..you never left the hospital and slept by my side there. you are my everything and I'm so thankful to you. You and dad have really been incredible to mum and me. You both have inspired me. I've never been more excited about life. I see so much so clearly. Will share more with all of you soon! Xo."
