“I don’t think of dying,” Valerie said. “I think of being here now.”

Valerie previously battled lung cancer back in 2009.

That is heart breaking.

fight it girl! i hope you’ll get better!!!


She’s not going to get better Terminal cancer means that it has already metastasis in other parts of the body nobody gets healed from late stages of cancer in this day and age but I’m sure but your thoughts are otherwise appreciated. I’m totally shocked but considering Valerie’s contribution to the arts she will not be forgotten

I loved you on the show, a very funny, funny lady, you will be in our prayers, and God will bless you, hang on in there okay?
