Maria Menounos has graced our screens for years, hosting multiple red carpet specials for various networks and more recently delivering entertainment news as the co-anchor of E! News.

The 39-year-old journalist and actress joined the network in 2014 after stints at Extra and Access Hollywood. She's also made numerous appearances in different TV shows and movies including Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, Hell's Kitchen, Nashville and Kickin' It Old Skool.

Not only is Menounos skilled in the newsroom, she's also proven that she can hold her own on the dancefloor with a 4th place finish in the 14th season of Dancing With The Stars and she's also a tough lady in the ring as a former WWE wrestler.

While the Emmy-winning anchor's career has been thriving, her personal life has been filled with some struggles as of late.

Last August, Menounos' mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. The entertainment journalist shared the heartbreaking news on Instagram and revealed that she was putting her wedding plans on hold until her mother was stable.

Thankfully, her mom has been on the road to recovery since and back in February Menounos posted an update about the fight.

Menounos and her family were on the verge of crossing one hurdle when another unexpected health crisis came to light. This time it concerns the anchor herself.
