Mary Tyler Moore News Archive
We really hope this isn't true, but according to sources close to Mary Tyler Moore, she's losing her battle with diabetes.
Apparently the 75-year-old star is going blind, has difficulty walking and suffers from life-threatening heart and kidney problems.
Ugh, we are so sad about this, and these are the hard-to-hear things that the source had to say:
The procedure wasn't due to a health emergency, but instead elective. However, any kind of brain surgery involving a tumor (benign or not) sounds horrifying, so CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta explained in further detail why Mary Tyler Moore's doctors decided to remove it now.

Mary Tyler Moore went under the knife for a four-hour operation to remove a small tumor on the lining tissue of her skull.
"According to her surgeon, she tolerated the procedure without difficulty and is recovering nicely with her husband at her bedside," said her representative.
The type of tumor she had is called meningioma, and the doctors say that she will require no further surgery.
Great news! Love it!
