Valerie Harper

STANDING TALL

breaking news

0306_valerie_harper_SplashValerie Harper is refusing to go gently into that good night ... continuing to go out in public and live her life after being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

The "Mary Tyler Moore" actress was pictured out in Santa Monica early Thursday morning with her husband of 26 years Tony Cacciotti ... sporting a brave face.

Earlier this week, 73-year-old Harper revealed she has leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, a rare form of cancer in which cancer cells spread into the membrane surrounding the brain.

Rage against the dying of the light.

If you people really disapprove of TMZ stalking and harassing Valerie Harper than do more than just gripe about it here on a board they don't read. Send them an email. Click on their contact page. Tell them! http://www.tmz.com/contact/contact-us

I have always loved Valerie. Now THIS is a star. The trashy actors of today could learn a lot about class from her, but they are too self absorbed. Prayers to you & your family, Valerie.
