The death of Gloria Maria
Glória Maria’s death took the public by surprise this Thursday morning. In a press release, TV Globo reported that the presenter’s death was due to lung cancer with brain metastases.
Glória discovered lung cancer in 2019. At the time, she treated the disease with immunotherapy and was successful. In the same year, the journalist was operated on for a brain tumor.
According to TV Globo, Glória started a treatment last year to fight new brain metastases, but it stopped having an effect in recent days. She was hospitalized in the first week of January.
