Earlier this month she revealed that shes fighting a losing battle with brain cancer, and Valerie Harper dropped by the Today show to discuss her diagnosis with Savannah Guthrie.
The Mary Tyler Moore starlet displayed a remarkably positive attitude about the whole ordeal and noted that shes hoping for the infinite possibility of a miracle.
Harper noted, Incurable is a tough word. Im not dying until I do. I promise I wont. More than hopeful, I have an intention to live each moment fully.
I dont mean this to be Pollyanna- I allow myself the grief. I also feel so much better not hiding. It feels awful damn good to be open about it, face it and see what you can do. If you die, youre not a failure. Youre just somebody who had cancer. And thats the outcome.
“What I”m saying is keep your consciousness, your thoughts open to infinite possibility and keep yourself open to miracles, she added.
