Valerie Harper is a fighter!
Not only is she competing in DWTS despite her diagnosis of terminal brain cancer, but in week 2 she also revealed that she fighting through some pain with a knee injury as well!
During her rehearsals with Tristan McManus, Valerie took a few tumbles here and there, but being the trooper that she is, she decided the show must go on!
Her knee definitely seemed to effect her routine as she took the stage and the judges pointed out that she made a few mistakes, however she still walked away with a respectable score of 19!
The fact that Valerie continues to fight on and compete is truly inspirational, and we couldn't be more proud of her!
Ch-ch-check out Valerie and Tristan tackling the Paso Doble (above)!
