Valerie Harper had a supporting role on “The Mary Tyler Moore” show and then stared in her own show “Rhoda”.  The show ran for five seasons, from 1974 to 1978.  I grew up laughing along with all of American as we tuned in to watch Valerie Harper’s sitcom.  Everyone loved Rhoda Morganstern.  It is so sad to hear about this diagnosis.  This is what she told People magazine in a recent interview:

  Valerie Harper is facing a devastating diagnosis: terminal brain cancer.  The television icon – beloved for her role as brash New Yorker Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spin-off, Rhoda – received the news on Jan. 15, she reveals to PEOPLE in this week’s exclusive cover interview.

A battery of tests revealed she has leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, a rare condition that occurs when cancer cells spread into the fluid-filled membrane surrounding the brain. Her doctors say she has as little as three months left to live.

Resolved to face her last days with courage and humor, “I don’t think of dying,” says the actress, 73, who previously battled in 2009. “I think of being here now.”

For more from Valerie, including her thoughts upon receiving the crushing news, how she is spending her remaining time and her inspirational outlook, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

Our prays go out to you Valerie.
