It was announced last week that Valerie Harper is dying of inoperable brain cancer. The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda star will talk about her illness and tout her new book I, Rhoda on three daytime talk shows this coming week. She will do interviews on The TODAY Show, The Doctors and The Talk.
According to a report from RadarOnline, Harper was spotted on Friday with husband Tony Cacciotti as she filmed interviews in Santa Monica’s Palisades Park. Between takes the two strolled hand in hand and paused to view a brilliant pacific sunset.
It must be an unfathomable feeling to be dying and to know there isn’t a thing you can do to stop your fate. It clearly is met with strength and faith by Harper and her husband.
Following the news of Valerie’s illness last week, former costar Mary Tyler Moore issued a statement of support.
“I’m absolutely devastated by this news,” she said. “Valerie has given so much joy, laughter and love to the world. I join her fans and send much love and positive thoughts to her and her family during this difficult time.”
Will you tune in this coming week to hear Valerie Harper describe her certain fate on one of these three shows? Her interviews will likely inspire many and cause others to pause and reflect, and be grateful for the blessing of good health.
