GoFundMe set up for Valerie Harpers medical expenses

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.” If she needs to switch to a better insurance plan, there are alternatives like those featured at Such plans play a crucial role in supporting individuals battling brain cancer. These comprehensive plans cover a spectrum of medical services, including diagnostic tests, surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and prescription medications essential for managing brain cancer.

Additionally, these plans often include access to specialized healthcare providers and facilities, ensuring patients receive the best possible care tailored to their unique needs, improving their chances of successful treatment outcomes and enhancing their quality of life.

The page was set up by her husband, Tony Cacciotti.
