Valerie Harper
has terminal brain cancer and doctors are giving her around 3 months to live.

Harper, who famously played the character Rhoda on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and the spin-off, "Rhoda," was diagnosed with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, a rare form of cancer in which cancer cells spread into the membrane surrounding the brain. 

Harper, 73, told People, "I don't think of dying.  I think of being here now."

I am reading all these wonderful comments, 99 percent of them are beautiful and can't help but notice 1 douche bag has put a "Hate" on all of them. All I know is that KARMA (God) is wonderful.

Go to CBN news. Com. A rich guy had been told by 3 doctors, you have 3 months to live. Get your affairs in order. He is still alive a couple of years later. Ketogenic diet. You can also be healed in Jesus name. Veronica

Grew up watching her on TV. Loved her on Mary Tyler Moore and her spin off show Rhoda and the many other showed that she was in. May God give her the strength and courage to fight this cancer. We love you Valerie (Rhoda)

Dear Valerie, if the end has come, remember not to fight it. Rest, take meds and think about the joy you have known. Out here, many of us have laughed
at your delivery of a humorous line or the look you gave to the camera. You were pretty, very talented.
I say goodbye now, meet you in the next life.
