Valerie Harper Is Set To Open Up About Her Terminal Brain Cancer Diagnosis On The Doctors

| Filed under: Sad SadCancer

valerie harper will be discussing her terminal brain cancer diagnosis on the doctors

A few days ago, Valerie Harper announced that she was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and revealed that she only had three months to live, and even though these times are harder than ever, the Rhoda actress is still brave enough to talk about her condition.

The 73-year-old starlet is set to appear on The Doctors on March 11 to give out details on her health situation and how she plans on living her final days.

While Valerie was on set at the show's studio, she was joined by her Mary Tyler Moore Show co-stars, Cloris Leachman and Ed Asner and her hubby, Tony Cacciotti.

Miz Harper admitted to the doctors that she didn't know about her diagnosis initially because her husband hid the paperwork, she said:

"I didn't get it because my husband hid it. Poor baby, he was so bereft."

And because Valerie is living out her last days like any other normal human being would, The Doctors co-host, Travis Stork noted that he is "blown away by her resilience."

The actress' episode will be focused on her treatment, and her medical squad from El Lay's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Jeremy Rudnick and oncologist Dr. Ronald Natale will be there to share the 4-1-1.

Will U be watching?!?

    surprised Oprah hasnt swooped in like a vulture to get that interview. She's probably negotiating to interview her on her deathbed in her final moments!

    I completely understand. I have a terminal illness as well.
    Might as well go out with a smile…like she said…it's been a great ride!
    I'll keep on having opinions until my last gasp.
    Ain't it swell to be human and alive? :)

    Re: ladydi – Wishing you the very best, ladydi.
    I am conflicted, on the one hand I would want to try and fight it with every breath I had. On the other hand. I would just go to my favorite beach in the Yucatan and enjoy every single margarita and taco and grilled grouper I was able to consume and just blow the money and tell my sister to leave my body in Mexico (it is expensive to fly a body home, same for med evac), because at that point I would not care if they dumped me in a ditch.
