Valerie Harper Has Been Diagnosed With Terminal Brain Cancer

| Filed under: Sad SadCancer

valerie harper has terminal brain cancer


The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda icon, Valerie Harper was recently diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, and according to her doctors — she only has three months to live.

When 73-year-old Harper went into the hospital for some testing, her analysis revealed 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.

However, even though Valerie's disease is extremely sad, she's not leaving this earth while feeling down in the dumps, she said:

"I don't think of dying. I think of being here now."

The actress had lung cancer back in 2009, so it appears as if she's prepared for what's to come.

Stay strong Valerie.

    Aw so sad. I've read this a few other places. I hope a miracle happens and she lives a much longer life! Most of all I wish her peace.

    Why would someone who has a few months left to live WASTE TIME giving worthless & meaningless interviews?

    This is very tragic. I only heard about this today, and even though she has known for a couple of months, the mags have to capitalize on it already. Her "brave goodbye." She's still here for frick sakes! Must be a slow news week.

    Aethlon Medical: In addition to addressing viral infections, the Hemopurifier also captures cancer-derived exosomes that also display high-mannose glycoproteins on their outer surfaces (2). Exosomes are membranous nanovesicles secreted by diverse tumor types that act as inter-cellular messengers to spread oncogenic signals. Evidence is emerging that cancer exosomes are involved in practically every aspect of malignancy, including apoptosis of immune cells, tissue invasion, angiogenesis, metastases and resistance to therapeutic drugs. The genomic and proteomic content of exosomes, as well as the exosome load in the circulation, are known to correlate with tumor stage and metastasis, suggesting that exosomes can serve as disease biomarkers (3,4). Accordingly, exosomes have emerged as critical targets in cancer care, and there is currently an unmet need for means of targeting these nanovesicles therapeutically.

    I must say that for only having a few months to live and now filming an episode of "Hot
    in Cleveland" leaves me wondering: WTF!
    Why am I wondering if she will come up with a "miracle" and say the diagnosis was incorrect?
    I'm not aware of the symptoms of brain cancer but somehow feel that it would affect a person's memory, etc. How can she memorize lines for the show?
    Publicity stunt, perhaps?
