Years ago actress Valerie Harper learned she had a rare brain cancer and and likely little time to live. Some how she managed to beat the odds and live six more years, all the while fighting the disease the entire time.
Now she’s exhausted both her energy and her funds and needs round the clock care, which her medical insurance wont cover.
The crowdfunding site states “There are unrelenting medical costs on a continuous basis. Valerie is currently taking a multitude of medications and chemotherapy drugs as well as going through extreme physical and painful challenges now with around the clock, 24/7 care immediately needed which is not covered by insurance.”
The page was set up by her husband, Tony Cacciotti.
The actress, immortalized as Rhoda Morgenstern on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and its spinoff “Rhoda”. She has 4 Emmy’s.
