Maria Menounos, co-anchor of E! News, says her brain tumor diagnosis was a ‘gift’ that has given her a different perspective on life.
The 39-year-old was forced to step down from her role earlier this year after doctors discovered the benign mass.
Now, after an operation in June to remove 99.9 percent of the golf-ball sized meningioma, she has told Today that the shock diagnosis has changed her life as she was forced to confront her mortality.
‘I’m just so much calmer because I just see things so differently now,’ she told Savannah Guthrie on Wednesday morning.
‘I did see this all as a gift and I shifted everything into positives throughout this whole journey.’
