Today we learned that Valerie Harper, made famous by playing the role of Rhoda Morgenstern on television's The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spinoff, Rhoda, has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.
When these types of celebrity announcements occur, we are sadly reminded that brain tumours don’t discriminate; they affect people of all ages and backgrounds.
Every day 27 Canadians are diagnosed with a brain tumour, that’s more than one person every hour. We are here to help everyone as we work together towards a cure.
We will continue to raise funds to work to improve the quality-of-life of patients and to fund the research necessary to find the ever-elusive cure. You can join us as we continue the fight. Find all the ways you can help here.
