Mary Tyler Moore Is Saddened Over Valerie Harper's Terminal Brain Cancer Diagnosis

Valerie Harper's terminal brain cancer diagnosis is getting sadder by the minute.

Earlier today, we announced that the Rhoda icon only had three months to live after her doctors determined that she had incurable cancer, and now, her BFF on and off the screen, Mary Tyler Moore is reacting to Valerie's terminal condition.

The 76-year-old actress underwent surgery two years ago for a benign tumor in the protective membrane around the brain, which is the same exact spot where Harper's cancer cells are situated.

Saddened about Valerie's diagnosis, Mary said:

"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."

Before Miz Harper went public with her condition, she called Miz Moore to let her know about her incurable disease, and even though it was heartbreaking to talk about the illness, the 73-year-old starlet revealed that Mary said just take everything "One day at a time," adding:

"That's how we've got to live our lives. That's the best we can do."

Our hearts and prayers go out to Harper and her family and friends.

We love you Valerie!

    I am so sorry to hear this. Since I have few family members alive, I would go to Mexico and enjoy the sun and salt water which are very healing (they will not cure her disease but will make her feel better). Then I would tell my two remaining family members to just leave my body in Mexico as it costs a fortune (5 figures) to ship a dead body home.
    I really enjoyed that show and she is a darn good actress.

    What a spunky, intelligent person Valerie Harper always was and apparently still is.
