Valerie Harper brain cancer is in last stage, Mary Tyler Moore shocked as Harper has only three months to live

What if you were told that you only have three months to live and you see life slipping out of your hands. Probably, we will sulk and will die several deaths before we actually leave, but our brave lady the Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda icon, Valerie Harper, after being told that she has three months to live due to terminal brain cancer that she is diagnosed with, is trying to be as healthy as possible.

It was for some kind of a test that the 73-year-old actor had gone to the hospital for and the revelation was made to her after the test that she had leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, which is a very rare condition that happens when cancer cells break into the fluid-filled membrane that surrounds the brain.

It seems that the lady has taken destiny on a positive note and no ways will she be leaving while feeling awful about what has happened to her.

The actor was reported as saying that she does not think of dying but of being where she is now.

The actress had gone through a rough patch way back in 2009 when she was told that she has lung cancer and she somewhere was prepared for something like this to come her way.

The actress herself stated that she is suffering from terminal cancer.

‘I, Rhoda’ is a memoir that the actor has penned down and was promoting her work until she fell ill early this year.

While talking about her condition, Valerie said that her side face starts feeling numb and her speech starts to slur. When she seeked medical attention, she was told that she is suffering from terminal brain cancer. Despite this, her spirits never went down, she said.

She expressed that she was making every possible effort to keep herself healthy. She is going for walks and is keeping her busy with talk shows.

Valerie has won an Emmy Ward and has had a long career to boast about.

It was in 1970 that Valerie became famous and the show that made her famous was the role of Rhoda Morgenstern on ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show.’ Other projects that kept her in limelight were ‘Rhoda,’ and appearances on shows like ‘Melrose Place,’ ‘That ’70s Show,’ ‘The Office,’ ‘Sex and the City,’ ‘Desperate Housewives’ and ‘Drop Dead Diva.’

After Valerie was told that she is suffering from cancer, she appeared on ‘Good Morning America’.

Valerie has a daughter and wants people to know that sulking to not the answer to a problem like hers but living life is.

She stated that her life served her with moments that made her morose but she always believed in getting up and start walking again. She stated that she is happy and blessed to have had a life like hers. A life that was fulfilling, rewarding, healthy, made her a star and made people love her. Now, that she is leaving, she will leave with smiles and reasons for others to smile. We surely will miss you Valerie.
