Valerie Harper on Her Cancer Miracle


After being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, Valerie Harper was told by doctors that she could have as little as three months to live. That was 13 months ago. Now, Valerie is talking about her miraculous treatment with ET.

"There's so much more I want to do and you are right there with me, ET," said Valerie, 74. "I am not suffering. I am not in pain, so I'm really blessed."

Valerie's type of cancer is difficult to treat but fortunately she's reacted positively to her medicine.

"I just had a great response to a certain drug," Valerie explained. "I was supposed to be dead by Easter [2013]."

This is Harper's second bout with cancer. She also battled it in 2009.

"I think Valerie is showing anyone who gets a diagnosis of cancer that there's always hope no matter what your doctor tells you," said The Doctor's Travis Stork.

Not one to be kept down, Valerie has even continued working during this tough time. We were on the set as she guest starred on two episodes of Hallmark's Signed, Sealed, Delivered, which debuts April 20.
