Death Of Mother

Sister Battled With A Brain Tumor 

Maria started experiencing intense ear pain in January

At first, she thought it was just an ear infection, but she went to see a doctor when it didn’t improve after a month. 

The doctor checked her ears and found no issues, so they asked if she had any other symptoms. 

Maria mentioned she had been having headaches every day on set. 

She felt dizzy when standing up during news segments, and her speech was sometimes slurred. 

As she explained these symptoms to the doctor, she realized they might be connected. 

She then shared her concern that she might have a brain tumor similar to her mom’s experience. 

Her mother, Litsa Menounos, had a type of brain cancer called Glioblastoma multiforme in 2016 when she was 61

Maria actively cared for her mother during her radiation and chemotherapy treatments. 

Later on, Maria also started experiencing health issues. Then she was suggested to take an MRI to be safe. 

But due to her busy schedule, she couldn't pay much attention to her health, and her tumor started to grow again. 

At the end of April, Maria was reminded by her assistant that she had an MRI she had postponed. 

There was an issue when her MRI was tested, so Maria had a feeling that something serious might be happening. 

When the result came out, Maria had a meningioma tumor about the size of a golf ball pressing on her facial nerves.

Unlike her mother’s tumor, this one was slow growing and noncancerous. But it could lead to severe headaches, balance issues, and speech difficulties. 

After her surgery, they removed her tumor, and now she continues to persevere and stay determined to get better. 


Peter was born in 1980, and his current age is 43.

Net worth

As a TV Journalist, his sister Maria's net worth is about $25 Million.
