Celebrities are expressing support for Maria Menounos after she revealed she underwent surgery for a brain tumor. See well-wishes from Hollywood stars below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Menounos was diagnosed with a brain tumor earlier this year. She went public with the diagnosis in a new People cover story released on Monday, in which she details the operation she had done in early June. Following the procedure, Menounos has a clean bill of a health, although there’s a small chance the benign tumor may grow back. She has opted to leave “E! News” in the wake of the ordeal, which came as her own mom battles brain cancer.

A few hours after the news broke, Menounos took to Instagram to assure fans she’s “ok.” “I’m recovering well and should be as good as new very very soon,” she insisted. “Luckily I don’t need any further treatments but I can’t say the same about my mom. So please keep her in your prayers.” A number of stars are now praying for them both.

Nikki Reed, pictured above with Menounos, wrote to her on Twitter, “Sending love light & prayers to both you and your mama! You are both so strong, & so brave! Wishing you a fast easy recovery sister.” Ashley Greene said, “Sending love and well wishes to @mariamenounos I admire your courage and strength, and wish you even more of it.” Chelsea Clinton tweeted, “Wishing Maria a speedy, full recovery.”

“Stay strong my friend. We’re pulling for you. #ohana,” said Dwayne Johnson. Holly Robinson Peete wrote, “Maria, sending positive energy and healing light your way.” E! colleague Ken Baker told Menounos, “Maria, you’re an All Star and the E! team is 100% behind you!” And on Instagram, wrestler Natalya Neidhart posted, “Thinking of my beautiful friend @mariamenounos today. I’m inspired by how strong Maria is for her family, as her mother is battling stage 4 brain cancer and in learning of Maria’s news and her own battle with a tumor in her brain, I’m just blown away by her strength and courage. We love you Maria and can’t wait to see you soon!!! #WWEFamily #unbreakable.”
