    Bless Valerie Harper! What a brave thing to reveal this devastating news to her public. I am so glad she did.....for her sake, for she will feel the love and support of people far and wide who have enjoyed her work and admire her as an actress, AND for the sake of others who suffer with diseases such as this so they will know they are not alone. I pray that her end of life journey is one of healing and love and the absolute knowledge that she made a positive difference in this world.

    I watched the Today Show this morning and I loved her comment about living in the moment. Bless her, she is so right that she could be 1 day, 3 months and yet she has met others with this disease and have been living for years.

    My wish is she live as long as she can. She has an amazing spirit.

    Like most who have posted here, I, too, enjoyed Valerie Harper on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and later on Rhoda. My favorite performance by Harper, though, is her role as Mrs. Delvecchio in the made-for-TV movie, A Friend To Die For that also stars Kellie Martin and Tori Spelling. It shows up on Lifetime/Lifetime Movie Network every so often, so if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend the film that features Valerie Harper in a very sensitive, poignant role as a religious woman who must deal with the fact that her teenage daughter, Angela, murders a high school rival.

    The character Mrs. Delvecchio sounds familiar... I will have to go and do some searching. Thank you!

    Awww, I spent so many sleepless nights back in the mid 90s watching reruns of MTM show and Rhoda on Nick at Night while nursing my first child! loved Valerie, loved that character, she was fantastic, and still is.

    I wish her many, many more peaceful, gentle days, surrounded by her loved ones.

    There was a brief article on my homepage yesterday indicating that Ed Asner, who co-starred with Harper on the MTM show, has been hospitalized for exhaustion.

    Good for her!


    Valerie Harper
    'Dancing with the Stars'
    Despite Terminal Brain Cancer



    Valerie Harper -- whom doctors gave three months to live back in March due to her terminal brain cancer -- hasn't just defied medicine by staying alive ... she's signed on to "Dancing with the Stars."

    As we reported, 74-year-old Harper -- famous for playing the role of Rhoda on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" -- announced she had been diagnosed with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, a rare form of cancer in which cancer cells spread into the membrane surrounding the brain.

    Doctors gave her roughly until June to live ... but it's already August, and we've learned she's doing so well she is set to appear on the upcoming season of "Dancing," an extremely physically-demanding reality show.
