Sitcom legend Valerie Harper in critical condition
Valerie Harper who played Rhoda Morgenstern on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and its spin-off “Rhoda” has a rare, inoperable type of brain cancer and doctors are saying that she has as little as three months to live.
Harper who is 73, says, “I don’t think of dying. I think of being here now.” The actress hopes that her story can draw more attention to cancer research.
One of her closest friends, Mary Tyler Moore issued a statement saying, “I’m absolutely devastated by this news. Valerie has given so much joy, laughter and love to the world. I join her fans and send much love and positive thoughts to her and her family during this difficult time.”
We wish her well.
