Harper to dis­cuss can­cer on day­time talk show

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — Ac­tress Va­lerie Harper plans to dis­cuss her brain can­cer with some tele­vi­sion doc­tors.

The day­time talk show The Doc­tors said Harper will ap­pear Mon­day to talk with Travis Stork, Lisa Master­son and An­drew Or­don, as well as her own team of doc­tors.

The 1970s sit­com star has been di­ag­nosed with a rare brain can­cer and told she has as lit­tle as three months to live. She said her hus­band briefly withheld the di­ag­no­sis from her be­cause it was so dire.

Harper, now 73, played Rhoda Mor­gen­stern on tele­vi­sion’s The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spinoff, Rhoda.

She is given the full hour of Mon­day’s talk show, and is sur­prised by former co-stars Ed As­ner and Cloris Leach­man.
