Tony nominee and Emmy winner Valerie Harper, who had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in March 2013, has revealed that she is now “absolutely cancer-free!” The TV icon told Closer Weekly: “I’m now the poster child for not believing everything I’m told.”
“My last scans have been positive, and my doctors are very happy,” said Harper. “There may come a time when I’m not feeling good. But then again, that time may never come!”
Best known for playing Rhoda Morgenstern Gerard on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda, Harper appeared on Dancing With the Stars last fall. A Tony nominee for Looped, her other Broadway credits include Take Me Along, Wildcat, Subways Are For Sleeping, Something Different, Paul Sills’ Story Theatre, Ovid’s Metamorphoses and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife. It was recently reported that she was to guest star in Hallmark’s Signed, Sealed, Delivered.
