Sad news from the Downtown LA Life mailing list Wednesday that Gloria Staunton, Director of Downtown LA Life Magazine for two years, has elected to stop her chemo therapy for her breast cancer follow-up treatment. The Staunton family spokesperson, Gloria’s sister Elena Farr-Morton, said:
Due to Gloria’s advanced condition and spread of cancer she has elected to forego further chemo treatments at this time. Gloria is in good spirits and resting. She is at the family home in Charleston, South Carolina. Her husband said that there are no present plans to return to Los Angeles in the near future.
Staff of Downtown LA Life and the associated Hollywood Media One stopped work at noon yesterday for a moment of reflection in Staunton’s honor.
