Dancing With the Stars Season 17: Valerie Harper to Join Cast Despite Brain Cancer — Report
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.
