Valerie Harper, who played Rhoda Morgenstern in TV sitcom “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and starred in its spinoff “Rhoda,” has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

People magazine reports that Ms. Harper received the news on Jan. 15, and was told she has as little as three months to live. She told the magazine, “I don’t think of dying. I think of being here now.”

Rhoda was one of my favorite shows during the 1970s. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Valerie Harper.
