Though she was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in March 2013, actress Valerie Harper is determined to continue living her life and furthering her career. The Mary Tyler Moore Show alumna is rumored to be joining Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars.

TMZ reports that though doctors gave the 74-year-old star only three months to live back in March, Valerie and her dance partner Tristan MacManus have already been practicing for two days without any additional assistance.

Hopefully the actress will continue to defy her diagnosis and shine this fall when DWTS returns for Season 17.

Other rumored cast members include Leah Remini, Elizabeth Berkley, Jersey Shore guidette Snooki, and Christina Milian.

And Wetpaint Entertainment learned exclusively that Glee’s Amber Riley and High School Musical’s Corbin Bleu will be taking the stage this fall.

Do you think Valerie should be competing or should she spend time taking care of herself after her devastating diagnosis? Tell us below!
