Valerie Harper health update: Beloved star’s husband told by doctors to put his wife into hospice care

I have been told by doctors to put Val in Hospice care and I can’t [because of our 40 years of shared commitment to each other] and I won’t because of the amazing good deeds she has graced us with while she’s been here on earth.

We will continue going forward as long as the powers above allow us, I will do my very best in making Val as comfortable as possible.

There are two special ANGELS on this planet masquerading as humans who live and work together, that have made it possible to have all of Val’s needs taken care of.

For those of you who have been in this position, you will totally understand that “it’s hard letting go.” So as long as I’m able and capable, I’ll be where I belong right beside her.

Many, many thanks for your outpouring of kindness and support.

Miss Harper, who has been battling cancer for more than six years, is a four-time Emmy winner for her iconic role of Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda,

    I remember meeting her as a kid with fellow students from my drama dept. we were watching a show that she was part of and after the taping when most of the audience left we remained in our seats and she met up with us. she was so lovely, kind and engaged with us… a bunch of goofy high school students. it made such an impact on me. i hope her end days are peaceful.

  3. So sad!…She was so great as Rhoda a real force of the time the in the great 70′s television.
    Her husband is Tony is the best…thinking about him.

  4. Please keep us updated. She has super fans including myself.

    Thank you, Celeste
