Harper de­fies odds, brain can­cer van­ish­ing

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — Valerie Harper’s doc­tor says the ac­tress’ brain can­cer is get­ting close to re­mis­sion.

The 74-year-old for­mer sit­com star had an­nounced in March that she had an in­cur­able form of can­cer and was given as lit­tle as three months to live. She’s still here — and work­ing, hired for a TV movie that filmed this month.

Dr. Jeremy Rud­nick said on NBC’s To­day show that Harper has de­fied the odds. But he says the prob­lem is that Harper’s prog­no­sis can change at any time.

He and Harper agree that life is about buy­ing time.
