"Today, one year later I know I not only survived, I thrived."
TV personality Maria Menounos turned 40 on Friday. In an Instagram she posted of herself with her dog, the Medford native reflected on her birthday last year, the day she had surgery to remove a golf ball-sized brain tumor.
“I wake up today and a year ago on this day I celebrated a birthday,” Menounos wrote in the lengthy caption. “This year however I celebrate it OUT of a hospital. I’m so thankful to be healthy and happy today as I turn 40. God blessed me with a new lease on life.”
Later in the post, Menounos added, “Today , one year later I know I not only survived, I thrived.”
